Is Marty Peretz Insane?

Years ago, I had a subscription to The New Republic.

After various articles in a series of issues caused me to fling the magazine across the room in a disgusted fit of pique, I canceled it.

For a long time, they kept sending it to me, even though I wasn't paying for it. They would send me renewal notices, which I would promptly throw in the trash. They called me with offers enticing me to resubscribe, which I continually declined.

And as long as Marty Peretz is writing fetid dogshite like "Christian Believers Would Be Excluded From Government If The Left Liberals Had Their Way," I can't say it's likely that I will ever feel remotely inclined to change my mind.
