   Today is the anniversary of George Washington's death at age 67. He died in 1799, a few weeks before the new century.

I recommend John Ferling's new book, The Ascent of George Washington: The Hidden Political Genius of an American Icon. It helped this reader understand once again how utterly fatuous it is to claim that American democracy would be "improved" by the abolition of "labels"– i.e. political parties.  American liberty only exists because of the contest of parties. When Washington condemned faction, he was criticizing those groups who extort unprincipled concessions from their own political parties precisely because it literally corrupts the brand.
