Potpourri

By Ross Douthat

Jonathan Last on the sports bubble.

Peter Suderman on the difference Liam Neeson makes.

Yuval Levin on the meaning of Sarah Palin.

Cato Unbound debates the value of partisanship.

Five looks at Terence Stamp.

Alan Jacobs looks at Auden.

And if for some reason you haven't read Mark Bowden on the making of an NFL telecast, do so now, before the memory of (possibly) the best Super Bowl ever starts to fade.
