"The Seven Deadly Virtues" sits down next to readers at the bar, buys them a drink, and an hour or three later, ushers them into the revival tent without them even realizing it.aThe bookOCOs contributors include Sonny Bunch, Christopher Buckley, David OC IowahawkOCO Burge, Christopher Caldwell, Andrew Ferguson, Jonah Goldberg, Michael Graham, Mollie Hemingway, Rita Koganzon, Matt Labash, James Lileks, Rob Long, Larry Miller, P. J. OOCORourke, Joe Queenan, Christine Rosen, and Andrew Stiles. Jonathan V. Last, senior writer at the "Weekly Standard," editor of the collection, is also a contributor. All eighteen essays in this book are appearing for the first time anywhere.aIn the bookOCOs opening essay, P. J. OOCORourke observes: OC Virtue has by no means disappeared. ItOCOs as much in public view as ever. But itOCOs been strung up by the heels. Virtue is upside down. Virtue is uncomfortable. Virtue looks ridiculous. All the change and the house keys are falling out of VirtueOCOs pants pockets.OCOaHere are the virtues everyone (including the bookOCOs contributors) was taught in Sunday school but have totally forgotten about until this very moment.a In this sanctimony-free zone: aOCo Joe Queenan observes: OC In essence, thrift is a virtue that resembles being very good at Mahjong. YouOCOve heard about people who can do it, but youOCOve never actually met any of them.OCOOCo P. J. OOCORourke notes: OC Fortitude is quaint. We praise the greatest generation for having it, but they had aluminum siding, church on Sunday, and jobs that required them to wear neckties or nylons (but never at the same time). We donOCOt want those either.OCOOCo Christine Rosen writes: OC A fellowship grounded in sociality means enjoying the company of those with whom you actually share physical space rather than those with whom you regularly and enthusiastically exchange cat videos.OCOOCo Rob Long offers his version of modern day justice: if you sleep late on the weekend, you are forced to wait thirty minutes in line at Costco.OCo Jonah Goldberg offers: OC There was a time when this desire-to-do-good-in-all-things was considered the "only" kind of integrity: OCyAngels are better than mortals. TheyOCOre always certain about what is right because, by definition, theyOCOre doing GodOCOs will.OCO Gabriel knew when it was okay to remove a mattress tag and Sandalphon always tipped the correct amount.OCOOCo Sonny Bunch dissects forbearance, observing that the fictional Two Minutes Hate of George OrwellOCOs "1984" is now actually a reality directed at living, breathing people. Thanks, in part, to the Internet, OC Its targets are designated by a spontaneously created mobOCoone that, due to its hive-mind natureOCois virtually impossible to call off.OCOaBy the time readers have completed "The Seven Deadly Virtues," they wonOCOt even realize that theyOCOve just been catechized into an entirely differentOCoand betterOComoral universe."
