Theodore Dalrymple, our optimistic doctor, is back at Takimag with another article on the many surprising benefits of the lockdowns associated with the Covid pandemic.
The need for so much commuting has also come into question during the lockdowns. One of the greatest blessings of my life has been that I have always been able to walk to work. If any words were necessary to be inscribed on my tomb after my death to illustrate my good fortune here below, they would be “He never had to commute.”
What always amazes me about Anthony Daniels/Theodore Dalrymple is his ability to take a single topic and to write endless variations on it. He repeats anecdotes at times, but he manages to produce huge amounts of original thought. It’s superb.
