Now that Simon Says seems to have become the new American pastime, I wonder if you agree with Senator Schumer's conclusion that President Trump's failure to use the ablative case when denouncing the Charlottesville Nazis will cause the deaths of millions of middle class Americans? And – did Mozart really use too many notes?

As a former Catholic, do you think the Roman church should be worried about claims made by transgender people that they can transform from male to female or vice versa simply by asserting their new gender identity, since this transubstantiation is being performed without due regard for canon law?

Based on US demographics it appears that red states will get more electoral votes and blue states will have a lot less in the next generation as amoral millennials choose not to procreate. But will the GOP be amoral as well in a generation and what is your thinking on the state of religious freedom in the future within the GOP?

Not the most important issue perhaps, but would you care to comment on the future for women's sports? It seems inconsistent to integrate the military such that women can storm the beaches at Normandy shoulder to shoulder with men, but still need their own cordoned off safe spaces to play soccer or basketball.

Could you comment on how science is being treated by those on the left these days, since it would appear that the fired Google engineer was, in fact, correct, and is supported by the National Institutes of Health in their previous research? Also, the areas that are most hostile to those child vaccinations that have been falsely linked to autism are overwhelmingly Democrat areas.

Do you think that the nationalization of exams in the U.S. has contributed to the decline of quality in the universities? The baby boomers were the first generation to go in on those full swing, and they treated college like a big joke, and it quickly became one. Now it's all politics all the way down, with cheating, manipulations, grade inflation and a tyrannical hierarchy of mostly empty prestige, at least so it seems to me. I'd like to hear any thoughts you might have.

Just to lighten up a little, I believe you're something of a fan of Jeeves and Wooster (your references to Catsmeat Potter-Pirbright are a big clue). Did you watch the BBC series, or read the original stories, which are wonderful? One of my favorites is "Bertie Changes His Mind, " in "Carry On, Jeeves," because it's narrated by Jeeves in the first person. Wodehouse is one of my very favorite writers of humor. Have you written much about him, other than his Broadway connections? I would love to read your impressions of him and of his writing style.

There's a question about illegal immigration remittances that I haven't seen any commentary about. They're are going to families back home, to take care of food, clothing, shelter. Fair enough; but where does that money go after that, within the financial oligarchy? My desultory look into this hasn't turned anything up. And have you seen the Gielgud-Richardson production of Pinter's "No Man's Land?" (It's on YouTube)

If you're progressive on social issues you might as well be a Democrat. Conservatism is more important than party. I'm a proud non-Trumper who was vehemently anti Obama/ Hillary...who thought Trump would be a train wreck. Too bad I didn't place bets in Vegas on it.

Hello Mark: My daughter has gotten into the Harry Potter books and movies recently so as a family we are re-watching the movies again after she finishes a book. I almost forgot how great an actor Alan Rickman was (I realize his turn in the Potter movies was probably a pale showing to his other movies but think he was still great) and was wondering if you could give a quick reprise of your obit of him from a while ago.

One of the things that drives me crazy is the fact that the MSM could be silenced (or at least slowed) if all conservative viewers simply cut the cord and refused to watch any shows whether it be for news or for entertainment. I can't believe that someone hasn't tried to organize this revolt. What am I missing? PS - I cut the cable about 4 years ago and never looked back.

Wife and I cancelled our subscription to our small local newspaper, willing to remain ignorant of local goings-on because we could no longer stomach contributing a penny to the NYT/Toronto star columnists they persisted in carrying. Plus, we grew tired of the endless "small animal news" items that seem to be taking over so many news sources and letters sections, now that having children is so passé. (Our small city has more pet superstores than toy stores.)

Can we do anything to fix the broken universities that are spreading SJW thought? It doesn't seem possible to change anything about demography, seriously speaking, without changing education first. It seems to me that conservatives have simply abandoned the entire field of education to the left, then acts surprised when they lose the culture war. What should we do, practically, to break the left's stranglehold on education from age 5 to mid 20s?

Re: your comments on late adulthood, an interesting review of "Cheap Sex" by Mark Regnerus by Naomi Schaefer Riley in the latest issue of Commentary. The conclusion seems to be that the biological substrate of partner selection has naturally adapted to the technological (the pill) and sociological (political feminism +) changes and that trumps all the rest of factors in population growth in the West. You have been talking talking / writing about this for a long time (including today). Is there any realistic hope for us? Anything we as a society can do?
