SO A LOT OF PEOPLE are recycling their best blog posts of the past year and such. I can’t even imagine what those would be out of all the posts this past year. But here are a few columns I’d like to mention one more time:

This April 15 piece on the Tea Party movement from the Wall Street Journal has held up well.

Why Guns Are Better Than Butter. Technically from 2008, but 2009 began with the election in November, it seems. . . .

The Hidden Cost of National Healthcare. Sadly, on target.

The importance of self-reliance and resilience.

Media Criticism, Chicago Style. Best read together with this cautionary piece on tax audits.

What happened to ClimateGate denialists.

More to come this year. Stay tuned!
