Just a note....since its way, way overdue. I truly do enjoy and appreciate your posts. I admit to being something of a cross-breed as regards my conservative principles (and my unorthodoxy as to my religious disbelief). That said, I started reading "National Review" in 1979. It's not easy following "conservative" (whatever those might be) principles and I have tons of respect for those who logically do.
I'm assuming you are teaching. It would be tough being a conservative teacher since I assume it puts you in a minority most anytime. Hang in there. I'm sure you are generally in the minority.
Not to be too presumptuous, I encourage you to keep fighting the good and smart fight. The world needs smart, thoughtful, principled people....though my outlook is bleak going forward (doesn't diminish my responsibility to fight for my beliefs, though). Keep pushing.
