April Randoms

Over at Taki's Magazine, John Derbyshire has some suggestions for amending the federal Constitution of those United States, amongst others, withholding the vote in federal elections from all civilian federal employees.

Royal World has a few thoughts on the recent Australian Royal visit.

Ad Orientem observes a return to the white tie.

Over at The American Conservative, W. James Antle III reflects on anti-anti-war Republicans.

An article at The American Interest, interestingly concludes:

As Meles Zenawi said: ‘There is no connection between democracy and development.’”
