"Even flushing yourself down the toilet of history is trickier than it looks."

Literal bathroom reading at Radishhof--Mark Steyn's NR piece on the death of Europe and the Europeanization of America is now online.

Key graf:

But of course, you must read the whole thing for the delightful Steynian prose that induces snickers amidst the gloom.

Meant: 'snickers amidst the gloom', not that typoed thing above.
