Victor Davis Hanson has given us an erudite analysis that trumps the regular blather than clutters our poor overworked minds. The unfortunate fact that history repeats itself has driven me to dust off a few formerly overlooked books. Media availability has reached fire hose proportions lately and sometimes I feel a little waterlogged. Hence, I seek out gems of wisdom to attempt to filter through the clutter. Mr Hanson hangs his hat at the Hoover Institute at Stanford University. He's the Martin and Illie Anderson Senior Fellow in Residence in Classics and Military History at the Hoover Institute. I won't bore you with an analysis, but rather link to his concise summary here.
He was interviewed this morning on the Dennis Miller Radio Show out here on the left coast of our fair continent: Sharp mind. Hope you enjoy it!
