Best Column of the Year

Everyone knows that Nick Kristof is my favorite NY Times columnist. But I think that David Brooks has outdone himself this year with his column “In Search of Dignity“.

There is a reason why George Washington is my favorite President and why I admire Queen Elizabeth II so much and it can be summed up in one word that is “dignity.” Our discourse in the public sphere is generally crass and course. In fact, there is a disappearing divide between the public and private sphere these days with politicians crying about lost soulmates on the twenty-four hour news cycle and women screaming their personal conversations into their cellphones in the public restroom stall next to me.

I for one want to live in the dignified world that David Brooks proposes.
