IN THE MAIL: Rod Dreher's new book, Crunchy Cons: How Birkenstocked Burkeans, gun-loving organic gardeners, evangelical free-range farmers, hip homeschooling mamas, right-wing nature lovers, and their diverse tribe of countercultural conservatives plan to save America (or at least the Republican Party). Looking at the list of "crunchy con" characteristics on the back cover I'm quite sure I don't fit the description (can you be a libertarian transhumanist crunchy-con? I doubt it), but it's an interesting thesis.
