Josey Wales Analogy
Michael Totten is part of a new centrist group blog called Donklephant. His own favorite piece so far is a by Callimachus. (The name, I believe, refers to the Polemarch of Athens, the general who commanded the right wing of the Greek army against the Persians at the Battle of Marathon.) Callimachus compares the decision making process of the outlaw, Josey Wales, to the healthy Madisonian diversity of our culture. Josey Wales is way cool.
