Happy Wednesday! Here’s what we have for you today:

At Postmodern Conservative , Pete Spiliakos writes on how to create a pro-life atmosphere in purple places.

Peter Leithart is writing today on Plotinus , political theology , and Giacomo Leopardi’s book of hodgepodge .

Dr. Boli reads the news .

Meanwhile, here at First Thoughts , we have: advice from P.D. James on book reviews (“If you are given a book to review by a close friend and you strongly dislike it, don’t review it”); thoughts on Guy Fawkes day (“I’ve always thought that knowing about Guy Fawkes Day was a mark of anglophile eccentricity, rather like reading P.D. James”); popes, politics, and duckrabbits ; and, finally, the diversification of homeschooling.

And On the Square today, we have George Weigel writing on his new book , while Thomas G. Guarino wonders what makes an accusation credible .
