My quill has been dry the last few days for various reasons (mainly because I am too frightened to come out from under the duvet for fear of the sex pests) but I am assigning the following to the reading list for my dear readers.
This from City Journal on the identity politics of the progressives in the US is fantastic.

This on the antics of the Internal Revenue Service scandal targeting conservative groups is also informative, by Melanie Philips.
