John Derbyshire Says: All Is Forgiven, Ramesh

During my fifteen years hanging out at National Review there were inevitably some staffers I liked a lot, some I had no feelings about, some I didn't much care for … And then there was Ramesh Ponnuru.

From a 2015 post of mine here at

One of the first to unsheath his stiletto in the April 2012 business, for example, was senior editor Ramesh Ponnuru, in whom high intelligence, ready wit, and a wonkish mastery of political detail are combined with a feline talent for intrigue and a patience in revenge that would have elevated him to the highest levels in the court of an Oriental despot.

I must say, though, that this tweet from yesterday has redeemed Ramesh completely in my eyes.

I'm still laughing.

Bygones, Ramesh, bygones.
