Out Of The Cool

Two recent articles of mine set the wayback machine to the early 1960s:

  • In TCS Daily, I have a longish profile and interview with James Piereson regarding his new book, Camelot and the Cultural Revolution, Piereson’s look at the tremendous cultural shock that 1963-era liberals underwent when they couldn’t process the ideology of JFK’s assasssin.
  • Over at Pajamas Media, I have a review of the new AMC miniseries series Mad Men, which, according to a calender show on screen, is set in March 1960, just as the race between Kennedy and Nixon was getting underway.
