“Since 1960 the Jews and Italians of Canarsie have embellished and modified the meaning of liberalism, associating it with profligacy, spinelessness, malevolence, masochism, elitism, fantasy, anarchy, idealism, softness, irresponsibility and sanctimoniousness.
The term ‘conservative’ acquired connotations of pragmatism, character, reciprocity, truthfulness, stoicism, manliness, realism, hardness, vengeance, strictness, and responsibility.”
Of course it all came undone after 2000. But that’s another story, for another book.

Isn’t it sexist to run this report? Why aren’t you writing about Men to Watch?
As I noted last year, the short answer is that we do — every day. It’s still rare to have a woman in the high-profile top seat. That leaves a lot of women who are having a marked influence — but who operate below the radar. One indication: We received more than 500 nominations this year, from people both inside and outside the Journal.
