Sometimes you don't miss something till it's gone. Barack Obama has been a classy, compassionate, intelligent, progressive, and even-keeled leader; traits that will go sorely lacking in the office after he leaves. The contrast with the President-elect has so far been unsettling to say the least.

Barnum and Bailey may be closing down. But there's a new circus in town and it's chock-full of elephants.

The things that have made Megyn Kelly a star don’t seem entirely compatible with the type of soft-focus patience that she may soon be trying to project.

The blonde bimbo years on Fox News could forever be her legacy. Too bad, because she does have some smarts.

One of our most popular magazine stories of 2016: Through the blog Mr. Money Mustache, Peter Adeney has become an outspoken advocate of his particular brand of thrift: “financial freedom through badassity."

Montaigne didn’t give a damn about democracy or free speech. But he had a rich foundational impulse toward the emotions that make a decent relation between man and state possible.

How could the late philosopher Richard Rorty have celebrated the rise of identity politics in the university while also deriding the major trends in critical theory as illiberal and decadent?

Shame that Metcalf stopped in mid-stride: he strung out what little he knew of Rorty just long enough to condemn Foucault, whom he probably never read, but without making any penetrating point about Rorty himself, or his work, Achieving Our Country.

Is this just so Metcalf can say he too quoted Rorty's prediction of the odious Trump?

The New Yorker usually does better than this.
