Thomas Storck sent me this link to an interesting conversation about Tony Blair’s conception of Anglo-American values. I put off posting it for a couple of days because I hadn’t finished reading it. I still haven’t, but it’s Holy Saturday and I’m not going to have a chance to for another couple of days, so thought I would go ahead and post the link for anyone interested. I happen to have a pretty strong attachment to the Anglo-American spirit and think it’s the source of much that is good in our culture (and much that is not, obviously), and it’s depressing to see what it’s come to. Appropriately, I ran across a great line from the English novelist Penelope Fitzgerald the other day in Crisis, something about "the English genius for irreligion." Although there have been rumors going about for some time that Blair may be about to become a Catholic.
