Confessions of a granola conservative.
alking with a conservative friend the other day, I mentioned that my wife
and I were having a friend over to dinner, and were going to serve him all
kinds of delicious vegetables from the organic food co-op to which we belong.

counterculturalists than with many garden-variety conservatives. What we
share is a disdain for, or at least a healthy suspicion of, mass culture. It
makes for interesting bedfellows.
