Sobrans -- The Real News of the Month

Introducing the Hive

Long-time readers of Joe Sobran will remember a metaphor he and Tom Bethell of American Spectator developed which they termed “The Hive.” Many of us had hoped that a rumored book they were writing might one day see the light of day.

We’re going to have to go on waiting a little longer. But in the meantime, both writers have begun to address the subject again. Until that book appears, the SOBRANS website will be posting columns and articles by both writers as they appear in various publications.
