Happy Tuesday! Here’s what we have for you to read today.

Over at Postmodern Conservative , two short (even Leithartian) posts from Peter Lawler as he reads the New Republic : why Malcolm Gladwell makes you stupider , why the Iran deal is doomed .

Quoth Maureen Mullarkey : “The lunatic dogmatism of the group . . . is not benign, no matter the inanity of the product .”

Peter Leithart doesn’t enjoy first person shooters (“I’m . . . the guy everyone sneaks up to get an easy kill”), is reading Papal Economics , books on violence , and a book about Thomist ontology which sounds really interesting but is also only available in French.

Dr. Boli wrote a story .

Here at First Thoughts , Dale M. Coulter writes about Thanksgiving, America, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Hawthorne; Robert P. George gives us some of the highlights from Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation; Carl R. Trueman has a post how the political scene has shifted ; and David Mills has his doubts about the Francis effect .

On the Square today, James R. Rogers looks at the decline in global poverty, while Stephen H. Webb reviews a new book on education .
