Here we are, in 2014, back doing our normal blog roundups. How are you? How was your Christmas? Read any good books lately?

Here are the blog posts for today:

Over at Postmodern Conservative, Pete Spiliakos is writing a lengthy criticism of the Republican establishment, currently in its third installment. (You can find the previous two installments here and here.) Reaching back a little, Carl Scott and Peter Lawler had a brief exchange about love and rock n’ roll.

Nothing new from Maureen Mullarkey today, but if you missed her Christmas post on Joseph and “The Cherry Tree Carol,” there’s no time like the present to change that.

Nothing new from Peter Leithart either, but here’s a smattering of what you might have missed: fake as the new real, outmoded marriage, tyranny, abortion in Israel, and Elmore Leonard.

Here at First Thoughts, Dale M. Coulter continues his defense of therapeutic Christianity, Phillip Cary slowly works his way up to the first baby of Genesis, R. R. Reno wonders if Christians are ruining religious liberty, Wesley Hill considers the proper use of time, and Mark Movsesian serves up a very tasty-looking pudding.

And finally, On the Square today, Dan Hart recommends Lou Reed as a role model, while Russell Saltzman does not recommend impeaching Obama.
