As long as I'm linking NRO, Jay Nordlinger says he's just filed a piece on Augusta for the magazine's next issue. In the Weird Story department, he adds something he left out of the magazine. He says that Augusta co-founder Clifford Roberts:

left the bulk of his estate to Planned Parenthood — because he despised children. (In fact, he kept one prospective member out of Augusta National because the man had five children, and “anyone stupid enough” to have that many offspring, said Roberts, “isn’t smart enough to belong to Augusta National.” Roberts, I might add, came from a family of five children.)

My point? Martha Burk and her brother feminists may hate Augusta National — but they should just remember ol’ Cliff’s will.


Nordlinger also describes Roberts, who eventually committed suicide, as a much less attractive character than his legenday partner Bobby Jones.
