OK, actually, his pinkie just grazed the tip of my ring finger as we trying to high-five the guy behind me… and I think it was a drop of the guy-behind-me’s beer that hit my cheek… but still, it was a special moment for me that few other people have experienced.”
At the time that this report was filed, Mr. Gleason was double-checking to see that he spelled the sports star’s name correctly on his thirteen Facebook posts.
The Imaginative Conservative applies the principle of appreciation to the discussion of culture and politics—we approach dialogue with magnanimity rather than with mere civility. We also sometimes add a dose of humor to our journal in the great tradition of Western satirists like Erasmus of Rotterdam, John Dryden, and Jonathan Swift.
