Check out this interview of Malcolm Gladwell from Friday’s Wall Street Journal. I like Gladwell’s writing, as his style always seems to be derived from thinking outside the box. As someone who always has her nose stuck in a book (or within eye sight of her BlackBerry or laptop), I have always found the material from Gladwell’s books to be insightful and challenging.
His new book will be out soon, and I can’t wait to get my hands on this copy. I am certain it will be one of my favorites.
H/T to the Republican Liberty Caucus. The Wall Street Journal recently published an op-ed stating that Rep. Paul Ryan would be a great choice for the House Minority Leader position, and I send my endorsement of Ryan as well. Rep. Ryan is a staunch advocate of the free market economy and has won in a district that has not been so favorable of the Republican party. He is a leader, who thinks outside the box, when it comes to reducing the size of government.
The Wall Street Journal mentioned, while Ryan is not seeking the leadership position, he is a rising star that has the potential to put the GOP back in the right direction. Although he is not running (and it is a shame), I couldn’t agree more. We need a leader who will advocate for the conservative core principles, not shy away from them.
