March has arrived, and with it, St. Patrick’s Day—patronal feast of the Emerald Isle. But two of the other five Celtic peoples have their patron’s days in March as well. Wales’s St. David opens the month on the first, and Cornwall’s St. Piran rolls along four days later. Of course, the Bretons and Manx celebrate in later months while the […]

Certainly, the increasing internecine bitterness of Democratic debates is evidence that something is deeply wrong.

Charles II (1630-1685) and the English Restoration

The English Restoration Has Begun
