Good Pick

The New York Times has selected Ross Douthat, a 29-year-old, pro-life Catholic, to be its next Op-Ed page columnist. He's taking the slot formerly held by Bill Kristol.

Douthat ("Dow-thut") is currently a blogger and senior editor at The Atlantic. He is co-author, with Reihan Salam, of the 2008 book "Grand New Party: How Republicans Can Win the Working Class And Save the American Dream."

It's a very good pick if you ask me.

I've quoted Douthat (pictured above) a few times in this space, most recently in regard to "The Flying Spaghetti Monster."

thanks for the update. I wondered who they were going to pick to replace Kristol.
