A Weird Hill to Die On
For reasons I can’t explain, the Left, including the Democratic Party, has made sex change operations on minors its signature issue.

At age fourteen, I attended a talk by Monty Python creator Terry Jones on Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. His display of wit, broad learning, and love of engaging big ideas left me with a lasting desire to teach and to write. And Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life was the only movie I ever sneaked in to see while underage. Python defined a certain generation of English schoolboys, of which I am one.

Why didn’t he appoint a special counsel?
