Being as the most active threads in the "Community" forum ("Random Musings," "Tales of a Middle-Aged Housewife," and "Cat Thread") appear to have migrated already, maybe that forum could get the treatment today or tomorrow?

So it's possible to herd cats over to a new website?

Well, it did end David Cameron's political career. And Theresa May's. So there's that.

What happened to "you can only pry my guns out of my cold, dead fingers"?
Wayne LaPierre parting the Red Sea or confronting Pharaoh would make a hilarious comedy skit.

Once LFC goes where I no longer dare go. Dreher is going to spontaneously combust one day.

On the subject of TAC I just heard a podcast sort of debate with a person who is on the editorial board of TAC...Helen something or other. She has a book out about how Boomers screwed over Millennials. It seems that the 1950s were the Golden Age of everything that is good. Boomers destroyed it all...marriage, churches, culture, education...with their anti-institutionalism. The Democrats were destroyed by the Left in going with McGovern as candidate in '72. No recognition of the economic decisions made by her beloved right wing. She's not wrong that Boomers screwed things up. She misses the fact that her right wingers are also Boomers. She sounded like Phyllis Shafley crossed with Laura Schlesigner's radio delivery. No wonder she works for TAC.
[emphasis added]

Then again, she might just be pining for the heyday of Jim Crow, anti-miscegenation laws, and McCarthyism.
