George Weigel reviews the newest baseball movie:
Now comes 42, the long-awaited cinematic telling of the Jackie Robinson story, which I recently saw on a snowy April Sunday afternoon in the Twin Cities. I wouldn’t call it a great movie (like, for example, The King’s Speech), but it’s a very, very good movie, and an entirely plausible challenger to 61* as the best baseball movie ever made.
Also today, Rob Schwarzwalder laments the declining role of reason in contemporary debates:
Christian faith demands intellectual rigor and assumes rationality. Without reason, Christianity no longer represents what its founder asserted himself to be: the Truth. This kind of commitment to reason and truth should characterize our public debates, but increasingly it does not.
