I’d go with you if you asked me too/But we wouldn’t get too far/Two strangers in the dark

First of all:


Sorry for the server difficulties. I’ve been grappling with them too. In fact, if any of my posts today struck you as less than cogent or insightful, let’s go ahead and blame the servers.

That’s all for me today. But as I head for the door, I just wanted to ask you fine folks to donate one last time—your dollars really do matter at a small, high-quality magazine like the Monthly, and we appreciate each and every contribution.

Until next time.

If you enjoyed this article, consider making a donation to help us produce more like it. The Washington Monthly was founded in 1969 to tell the stories of how government really works—and how to make it work better. Fifty years later, the need for incisive analysis and new, progressive policy ideas is clearer than ever. As a nonprofit, we rely on support from readers like you.

Yes, I’ll make a donation
