Wednesday Roundup

Michael Barone strikes just about the right tone in a review of Rick Perlstein's Nixonland. He has a very grudging respect for Richard Nixon's presidency, a feeling I can certainly understand.

Daniel J. Flynn is not too pleased with the recent depiction of the late Harvey Milk. It seems the real Milk was a bit more complicated.

David Brooks reviews Simon Schama's latest book and has some great lines on brilliant writers.

I heard about this on the radio the other day, but it is worth reading the TimesOnline review of Honda's new hybrid.

Finally, Mark Steyn reprinted his article on the Battle Hymn of the Republic for Memorial Day.
