    I have not read any of these stories, either, and, like you, am hoping for some input on them from fellow readers.

    The Weekly Standard often has interesting and useful book reviews and unless the subject of a book is a political one I think most of us would not find they have an ideological slant to them. I think we can read reviews from TWS or The Nation, whatever, and make up our own minds, n'est-ce pas?

    For example, the Weekly Standard had several interesting articles on the bicentennial of Edgar Allan Poe, who made the cover of the 19 September 2009 issue (Vol. 015, Issue 02), including a good one by Shawn Macomber on which American city Poe can really claim Poe as its own:
