Getting Started

Welcome! This blog is dedicated to providing a daily review of the Wall Street Journal editorial page. There are plenty of people in America who suspect Bill Clinton of involvement in multiple murders, who believe the events of this world are guided supernaturally through the intervention of dolphins, and who struggle with basic math skills. There are also plenty of people who have influential voices in the shaping of government policy. The odd fact that the editorial pages of one of America's great newspapers are the scene of an intersection between what you might expect to be entirely distinct groups has received rather less attention than I think it deserves. What follows will, I hope, be a small attempt to correct this puzzling oversight. Thanks for joining me, and let's see how it goes, shall we?
