Thank you for carrying Megan McArdle’s column on the Herald Opinion page (“Why conservatives are split on how to fight the left,” The Herald, Sept. 12). What a relief from the usual fare of Trump-obsessed bilge from our other opinion page denizens (Sid Schwab, Dana Milbank, Eugene Robinson et. al.) which are rarely worth fully reading mainly because of their tiresome predictability and almost single subject (Trump).
McArdle, with scalpel precision, cuts through all the distractions and noise to correctly identify the fault lines in American society that seem to be approaching civil war. And what fresh air. She does it without any discussion or mention of the current president who is, as are we all, another soul riding a night train that seems headed for a bad place.
