Ave, Charles!

1. My buddy Charles writes a thoughtful review of "Hidden Figures."

2. One of the few right-leaning Zen Buddhists I know of writes an article (forgive the typos) that confirms something Charles wrote to me privately regarding what treason technically means according to the US Constitution. The article, by its very existence, also highlights the rhetorical and ideological contrast between Instapundit (i.e., the group blog) and Instapundit's fractious commentariat. Dipping into the comment-thread demimonde is not at all the same experience as just reading the blog posts.

Yep, the treason thing cuts both ways. I get wary when anyone starts throwing the term around, no matter what side of the aisle they are on. (Kind of like "un-American.")

To quote the great Inigo Montoya: "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."
