Links of the Week

For their 10th Anniversary, the Weekly Standard holds an interesting symposium on what their contributors have changed their mind about in the past decade, featuring Gerard Baker, Max Boot, David Brooks, Christopher Caldwell, Eric Cohen, John J. DiIulio Jr., Noemie Emery, Joseph Epstein, Andrew Ferguson, David Frum, David Gelernter, Reuel Marc Gerecht, Robert Kagan, Tod Lindberg, Harvey Mansfield, P.J. O'Rourke, John Podhoretz, and Irwin M. Stelzer.

Cato's Steven Slivinski calls on Congress to sacrifice some of its pork to offset hurricane relief.

Heather MacDonald takes on post-Katrina racism charges.

Jim Geraghty is in Berlin covering the German election this weekend, so keep an eye on TKS.

Finally, a little bird tells me that Cathy Young will start blogging regularly on Monday. (The same little bird tells me she never writes while drunk, so she'll blame it on sleep deprivation.)

Someone from the Cato institute made the suggestion that pork should be sliced to pay for Katrina. Fat chance of congress doing this. The liberals will want to raise taxes, Bush will refuse, and the media will excoriate him and point to every displaced refugee as an example of Bush's favoritism of the "rich."
