James J. Kilpatrick hangs up the cleats

National Review's take on his retirement is here. I read Kilpatrick's columns while I was growing up. His insights were sharp, well- reasoned, and often amusing (showing how humor could be used persuasively). His Point/Point-Counter exchanges on 60 Minutes were great, with the best being his response to Shana Alexander's hysterical tirade about how women reporters should be allowed into the men's locker room to interview professional baseball players --he was jovial as he dissected her argument with ease and finished with this happy zinger: ". . . and it should be boys chasing girls. That, after all, is the national past time!"
