Betty White’s Breakout Role

Written by Gary North on January 28, 2017

I read this paragraph and almost gagged. Betty White celebrates her 95th birthday today, reaching yet another milestone in a decades-spanning career that is still just as active as ever. It’s hard to believe it’s been 55 years since the beloved actress made her feature film debut in Advise & Consent, a performance that led […]

Debbie Reynolds, RIP

Written by Gary North on December 31, 2016

She’s gone, one day after her daughter died. How strange. They did not get along for a long time. They got along so unwell that Mike Nichols made a semi-biographical movie about them: Postcards from the Edge (1990). Carrie Fisher wrote the book and the screenplay. Nichols persuaded Meryl Streep to play Carrie’s character and […]

How to Teach “Boring” History to Teenagers

Written by Gary North on December 17, 2016

I teach American history to high school seniors in the Ron Paul Curriculum. Teenagers have grown up in the digital age. They respond well to visual images. They are not comfortable with learning 100% through reading. This is nothing new. This is why documents from ancient Egypt show that priests taught young men by means […]

Lew Rockwell made it. Ron Paul made it. But I didn’t. You can read about it here. Some unknown lefty outfit compiled a list of 200 websites promoting what it called the Russian party line.

Political cartoonists are among the most creative artists in the world. How do they do it, day after day? How does anyone come up with that many creative ideas? There have been hundreds of thousands of them over the years. They stretch back two centuries. The cartoons that Thomas Nast drew of New York City’s […]

The Day I Discovered Bob Dylan: Spring, 1962

Written by Gary North on October 22, 2016

They say that Americans over age 60 remember where they were when they heard of President Kennedy’s assassination. I surely do. But I also remember where I was when I heard Bob Dylan for the first time, about 18 months before Kennedy died. I was in my rented room close to UCLA, which I attended […]

Oh, My Aching Swaggart Back

Written by Gary North on October 22, 2016

It’s the 30th anniversary of my aching back. It’s better these days. I sit in a Herman Miller Embody chair. Yet the story is a strange one. In 1986, I was speaking at the New Orleans gold conference. I had spoken there several times over the years. My partner John Mauldin had come along. He […]
