“Goodbye Yogitoes!”

Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics Review

From America’s preeminent columnist, named by the Financial Times the most influential commentator in the nation, the long-awaited collection of Charles Krauthammer’s essential, timeless writings.

A brilliant stylist known for an uncompromising honesty that challenges conventional wisdom at every turn, Krauthammer has for decades daz­zled readers with his keen insight into politics and government. His weekly column is a must-read in Washington and across the country. Now, finally, the best of Krauthammer’s intelligence, erudition and wit are collected in one volume.

Readers will find here not only the country’s leading conservative thinker offering a pas­sionate defense of limited government, but also a highly independent mind whose views—on feminism, evolution and the death penalty, for example—defy ideological convention. Things That Matter also features several of Krautham­mer’s major path-breaking essays—on bioeth­ics, on Jewish destiny and on America’s role as the world’s superpower—that have pro­foundly influenced the nation’s thoughts and policies. And finally, the collection presents a trove of always penetrating, often bemused re­flections on everything from border collies to Halley’s Comet, from Woody Allen to Win­ston Churchill, from the punishing pleasures of speed chess to the elegance of the perfectly thrown outfield assist.

With a special, highly autobiographical in­troduction in which Krauthammer reflects on the events that shaped his career and political philosophy, this indispensible chronicle takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the fashions and follies, the tragedies and triumphs, of the last three decades of American life.

Author One-on-One: Charles Krauthammer and Dana Perino

Dana Perino Charles Krauthammer

In this Amazon One-to-One, Charles Krauthammer and Dana Perino discuss Dr. Krauthammer’s new book Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics. Charles Krauthammer is a Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist, political commentator and physician. Dana Perino is a Former White House Press Secretary who worked with President George W. Bush, contributor and co-host of The Five on FOX News. She is a long-time friend and fan of Charles Krauthammer.

Dana Perino: Your new book covers three decades of your writings, divided into 16 chapters, and grouped into categories of the things that have mattered to you in your life. As you reviewed your body of work, were you surprised by anything that you had written? Did you ever think, “I can’t believe I ever thought that”?

Charles Krauthammer: No real surprises—I find that I agree with myself a lot—except for my enthusiastic review of Independence Day. Though I might’ve been unduly swayed by seeing the premiere with my son, then ten, who announced after the showing that he would see the movie every week for the rest of his life.

DP: The thing that has mattered most to you is your family. Your book opens with a column that could be called “a two-hankie job.” How hard is it to write about the people that you love, to give people a glimpse into your personal life?

CK: I didn’t become a writer to write about myself. In fact, I don’t even like using the word “I” in writing an opinion column, let alone a personal one. The only times I really have written about my own life is when it had a purpose outside myself, such as honoring a person, perhaps a friend or mentor, of extraordinary character.

DP: As a long-time fan of yours, there are some of your columns that I remember reading, and where I was when I read it, and how I said to my husband, “That’s exactly what I was thinking!” Do you know when a column is going to be a hit?

CK: Quite the opposite. I’m always amazed how wrong I am. A column that I think will sink like a stone might catch on like wildfire. Others that I’m proud and smug about as I submit for publication, leave no trace. Which is why I’m a writer, not a publisher. I wasn’t made for marketing.

DP: The original essay you penned for Things That Matter is like an award-winning exhibit of your heart and mind. What will readers learn about you that they may not have known?

CK: How improbable my life story is. I still wake up simply amazed how I’ve ended up where I am, mostly by serendipity and sheer blind luck. I started out as a doctor. I ended as a writer. And that’s the least of the stunning twists and turns that have defined my life—which I write about, for the first time, in the introductory essay to Things That Matter.

DP: You have become a must-read and a must-see on television news programs. Parents shush their children when you’re about to speak. On the rare Friday when you don’t have a column or when you’re not on Special Report with Bret Baier, your mom gets calls of “Where is Charles?” Disappointment hangs heavy over your fans. But who are your weekly must-reads?

CK: George Will. David Brooks. Mickey Kaus. And for that happy half of every year—April through October—the (daily) box score of the Washington Nationals.

DP: Do you think that your training as a psychiatrist has given you an advantage when observing people in politics?

CK: Actually, no. Psychiatry has everything to say about mental illness, very little to say about ordinary life. It offers no magical formulas for understanding human behavior beyond what any lay person can see. Although I do like to joke that there’s not much difference in what I do today as a political analyst in Washington from what I used to do as a psychiatrist in Boston—in both lines of work, I deal every day with people who suffer from paranoia and delusions of grandeur. The only difference is that the paranoids in Washington have access to nuclear weapons.

DP: You wrote a column on September 12, 2001 that is included in Things That Matter. How difficult was that to write under the time pressure of the day, and to keep your commentary to standard column length?

CK: Like the whole country, I was on fire with fury. I felt I simply had to write. The difficulty was less time pressure than emotional pressure—trying to suppress my feelings so I could be as analytical as possible. Sometimes that kind of writing can be disastrous. I think this one came out right.

DP: Given the mention in your essay, and because I have a gut feeling that we’re on the same page, what is your preferred style on serial commas?

CK: With commas the rule should always be: the fewer the better. They are a scourge, a pestilence upon the land. They must be given no quarter. When you list three things, it should be written: a, b and c. If you see a comma after the “b”—call 911 immediately.

DP: Many readers may not realize that you once were a Democrat? Was it a gradual or a spectacular breakup?

CK: Like most breakups, gradual. Like few breakups, however, without regret.

DP: You have covered politics and government since the Carter administration. Do you believe that America’s politics are too strained, too partisan, and too deranged to make meaningful progress?

CK: Not at all. What we need is not a new politics but a new president.

DP: What do you think will be the things that matter 20–30 years from now?

CK: The things that really matter, as I try to explain in the introductory essay—the cosmic questions of origins and meaning, the great achievements of science and art, the great mysteries of creation and consciousness—shall always be with us. Thirty years from now, 300 years from now. I hope that one contribution of this book will be to provide some illumination on these wondrous mysteries and achievements.

DP: If you had a magic wand and could get the U.S. federal government to do three things, what would be your top priorities?

CK: Abolish the income tax code with its staggeringly intrusive and impenetrable provisions and replace it with a clean consumption tax.

Get out of the race business and return the country to the colorblind vision of Martin Luther King.

Kill the penny.

Stability Balls Review

Stability Balls

A stability ball can add a lot to your bodyweight training exercises. Not only can it tighten up muscles and build strength, but it can help you with balance as well. These balls are lightweight and can be used for a variety of exercises.

You can find these balls in various weight limit strengths. These are perfect aids for anyone looking to get or stay fit. They’re easy to use for someone who’s not used to exercising, someone with joint or back problems and for those who are used to tough workouts.

You can improve your core muscle strength, which can give you better posture, prevent backaches and help you with your ability to perform your day to day tasks.

Using a stability ball strengthens abdominal muscles – including the ones you want to tone into a six pack. You’ll gain strength in your mid as well as your lower back muscles.

You can use the ball to sit on while you’re performing a wide range of exercises. When you use a stability ball, it forces resistance in that you have to maintain balance while you’re working out.

The muscles that you use to keep your balance are the ones that help you with your posture. There are plenty of exercises you can do with this ball. You can do sit-ups on a stability ball.

You can do crunches – including side crunches. You can do push-ups, curls and squats. You can use them for shoulder exercises such as rowing movements or the jackknife.

The exercises can be done with or without added weights. When choosing a ball, one thing you want to keep in mind is that the bigger the ball is in comparison to your height, the less resistance you’ll get on your exercises.

So it’s important that you choose a ball that’s right for your height. If you’re shorter, choose a smaller ball. The Anti Burst Exercise Stability Ball also comes with its own pump.

It can support up to 2,000 pounds of weight. This is a professional grade ball that you can get in different sizes ranging from 45 cm to 85 cm. These are high quality, thick walled balls that are constructed to last through long term use.

The Tone Fitness Stability Ball comes in a fuchsia or blue color. It’s made of burst resistance material and is good for using during core conditioning and even during tough resistance exercises.

The Wacces Fitness Exercise and Stability Ball can aid you in working out your major muscle groups. You’ll be able to work out your abdominal muscles, your thighs, back and core muscles.

Using the ball can help you get the sculpted look you want. This ball comes in three sizes, 55 cm, 65 cm and 75 cm. Its weight safety limit is 500 pounds. A pump is included with this ball.
