THOUGHTS ON MANLINESS FROM Jeff Goldstein. “Those who refer to masculinity without the requisite disclaimers about how it is unmasculine to refer to masculinity can lay no claim to that real masculinity — which evidently comes from recognizing that real masculinity is seldom pointed out by really masculine people, unless they are pointing it out to show how pointing it out is unmasculine. Which, in turn, makes them masculine for the effort.” Got that? Plus, this observation.

UPDATE: HEH: “My wife shares in your enthusiasm.”
