Today’s “On the Square” offers a preview of the next issue, now in the mail to subscribers, from the editor’s “Public Square.” In The Signpost at the Crossroads, Joseph Bottum examines “the signpost at the intersection of religion and American public life.” I would tell you what that signpost is, but that would limit the effect of the article’s opening. I will say that the calculations of Mitch Daniels is a major subject.
Now would be a good time to point out to those of you who read the website but not the magazine that the magazine is an excellent investment: weighty and substantive yet easily read, serious yet a pleasure to look at, featuring material that appears nowhere else in American publishing. It can appear in your mailbox ten times a year for much less than a family dinner at a chain restaurant. If you subscribe.
