The Glimmer of Light

Hi everyone and welcome to this week's edition of Laura's Links. I was going to start this column with a short vignette of my Sabbath morning, a literal ray of light which followed a few very tough days. I kind of worked it out in my head, and tried to remember some of the words that were floating around in my mind (among the other prohibitions of the Sabbath, religious Jews do not use electronics or write anything with paper and pen on the Sabbath, no 'creation' of anything new). I went over it a few times as I was out walking throughout the day, reminding myself of certain phrases that I wanted to recall when my fingers were finally allowed to touch my keyboard as the day turned to dusk and then nightfall. That was my plan anyway. But ...

A Clubman's Notes

Who Do You Fancy in the Chester Cup?

It's time for Part Seven of my latest Tale for Our Time: Bulldog Drummond, with the pseudonymous Sapper ushering a new protagonist into the high stakes of post-Great War geopolitics.

Bulldog Drummond from the waist down doesn't really bear thinking about from 007's point of view, since it's just a bit of all-purpose mooning over some generically "topping girl". However, Fleming certainly inhaled Sapper's tremendous narrative energy, with Bond, like Bulldog, always pushing on to the next great set-piece. That said, Gareth Roberts, a First Weekend Founding Member of The Mark Steyn Club, ...
