Change of Heart

January 9th, 2009 by Bill Brown · 5 Comments · Comment Contest Friday

Many blogs do a caption contest every Friday wherein the blogger posts a picture and then visitors leave their take on an appropriate and funny caption for that photo. I really enjoy contributing to those sorts of things, but it doesn’t seem appropriate for TNC so how about a comment contest on Fridays. We select an article—nothing too lengthy—and you supply a comment analyzing it. Our commenters thus far have been exceedingly insightful so I’ll be most interested to read your take. Winner gets a free RSS subscription to TNC!

    Talk about sanction of the victim.

    He and others like him are Vichy-businessmen. Rather than fight tyranny, they seek to accommodate it and thereby hasten their own enslavement.
