Sssshhhhweeeet. . .

. . .is the word that comes to mind when I read Peggy Noonan pieces, and this one is no exception. Like Peggy, I have Irish blood (though slightly dilluted), and that combined with her writing gifts endears her to me in a way that other writers don't. She's P.J. O'Rourke with a sensitive side and a good liver. Have a swig:

"And good advice for our country, isn't it? After all the Sturm und Drang of the past few weeks our country would benefit from an absence of sound. Next week we mark Thanksgiving. Today, in anticipation, and after our fractious election, we could declare National Settle Down Week. National Be Still Week. Or National Give It a Rest Week."

NOTE TO LIBERALS: Sturm und Drang is kind of like a "ruckus" -- not expensive stereo equipment.
