In his bi-weekly op-ed for The New York Times, David Brooks is a shark among dolphins (or vice-versa), occupying some of the few column inches in the paper reserved strictly for conservative thought. Blue bloods, don’t let that red tinge color you disinterested—Brooks is a brilliant thinker and lucid writer appearing regularly on PBS’ Newshour and NPR’s All Things Considered. In recent weeks, the Toronto native has written about Ebola’s ability to exploit “weaknesses in our cultural fabric,” the errors of politicians “microtargeting” voters and political idealism after Obama.
