I hope my own thoughts are worth reading, at least most of the time, but the ones I had in mind when I wrote the title of this post are at First Thoughts. A commenter at WorldMagBlog offered the link as a place for more substantive articles and discussion than is usually found at WMB these days. I checked it out, and I can see I’ll be spending quite a bit of time there.
First Thoughts is only one of several blogs linked to at First Things, which is the online presence of the print publication (of the same name) founded by Richard John Neuhaus. I have occasionally read articles there, but hadn’t been aware of the blogs. Only some of the articles from the print edition are available free online; after reading most of them for the current issue, I’m seriously thinking about getting a subscription (at least to the online version).
These are the kind of thought-provoking articles I want to spend my time reading and thinking about. They cover a wide range of topics, including some that I would not have thought to learn about otherwise. Just the thing for a “perennial student” like me.
