I got RNZ itself on short wave one night, and can get numerous RNZ channels on my phone with Tunein...

Are you now. You bemourn  the removal of  public civil war references icons and statues thereof  as part of destruction or denial of the celebration of  the  reminiscence of history in the south yet when it comes to celebration of those lives who were injured and compromised by the confederacy in  venues such as the Alabama Lynching Museum , you believe otherwise. You said they should have gotten over it by now.

How does one support such a conflict and still have a spine?

He didn't want to wear a mask in public because he was afraid it would make him look silly.

The Spectator is written for an educated readership.

There's usually a good deal of subtlety and a fair number of allusions to history and cultural matters.  For example, I really liked this:

This riot is a peculiarly American combination of the storming of the Bastille and Animal House. It inspires a peculiar mix of emotions: as fearful, sad and angry as you might well be, if you claimed not to find the image of MAGAstrix ascending the podium as if he was about to seize Washington DC for Gaul perversely comic, I would question your honesty. 

re:  Alabama Lynching Museum

I don't give a damn about it.  It's not a question of hypocrisy.  It's a question of what I like versus what you like.  I like sculpture.  You like watching documentaries about people being hanged.
