The Persistent Myth of the Empty American Frontier

The author and popular historian David McCullough has a new book out called The Pioneers: The Heroic Story of the Settlers Who Brought the American Ideal West. I don’t really know where to start with that title (heroic? ideal?) but in her Slate review, Rebecca Onion says that McCullough’s brand of Manifest Destiny-laden American history furthers “the lie that the ‘frontier’ was an empty Eden waiting for American expansion”. This poem embodies another “pioneer attitude” — the idea that the land ...

Migrants won't see armed US soldiers on border

SAN DIEGO (AP) — As thousands of migrants in a caravan of Central American asylum-seekers converge on the doorstep of the United States, what they won't find are armed American soldiers standing guard.Instead, they will see cranes installing towering panels of metal bars and troops wrapping concertina wire around barriers while military helicopters fly overhead, carrying border patrol agents to and from locations along the U.S.-Mexico border.That's because U.S. military troops are prohib...

The Founding and the Origins of Our Constitutionalism, Part II

Jonathan GienappFor the Symposium on Jonathan Gienapp, The Second Creation: Fixing the American Constitution in the Founding Era (Belknap Press, 2018). II. Fixity and the Inevitability of Our Constitutionalism? I now turn to constitutional fixity, the concept that lies at the heart of my story. This subject is complex—not least because, as Sandy Levinson appropriately writes, fixity is “chimerical.” So it’s valuable to restate some central points. I argue that Founding-era Americans did not...

And according to the editor David Remnick, "even New Yorker staff members had expressed discomfort" at including Bannon. Remnick also said, "The reaction on social media was critical and a lot of the dismay and anger was directed at me and my decision to engage him."Jeez, the editor of The New Yorker is sensitive to "dismay and anger" that's directed at him personally?

21 Western Novels Every Man Should Read

“The western story, in its most usual forms, represents the American version of the ever appealing oldest of man’s legends about himself, that of the sun-god hero, the all-conquering valiant who strides through dangers undaunted, righting wrongs, defeating villains, rescuing the fair and the weak and the helpless — and the western story does this in terms of the common man, in simple symbols close to natural experience . . . depicting ordinary everyday men, not armored knights or plumed fancy-...

Miss USA Is Trying To Reinvent Itself Post-Trump — But Is It Working?

This story was originally published May 23, 2017.If you tuned into the Miss USA competition last weekend, you might have noticed some big changes. For the first time in the show's 65-year run, a Black scientist won the 166.82-carat crown. What's more, she was wearing her natural textured hair, sported a one-piece swimsuit, and found herself in the final two with a feminist, Indian-American immigrant — not exactly the status quo. Seen individually, these might be small wins for diversity, but t...

The Deserted Island reading list

One of the classic discussion questions is what books would you want on a deserted island. I have a slightly different spin on this old question, what books do I keep on my Kindle paperwhite for backpacking trips. I keep my entire library on my various iPads since Calibre and Calibre Companion/Marvin make it easy to search my library (around 3300 books and growing). On the other hand, I find that the paperwhite doesn't really do book organization well. So I have a list of about 200 or so bo...

Campbell Hall girls golfer Danielle Landis is teeing off with the boys

Danielle Landis is the girl among boys at Campbell Hall High School. The 14-year old golfer started swinging clubs at age 5 with her dad, but Landis didn’t envision her high school career being quite like this. She plays on the boys golf team. “I love it. When I out-drive the boys I like to see the expression on their faces,” Landis said with a big grin. The best part: she plays from the blue tees (men’s tees), just like everybody else, even though she has the option to play from the red tees, a...
