A few years ago, Jimmy Dugan trying to capture something of the character of Marjorie Rosenthal Decter Podhoretz, talked about what made Midge Decter great and unique.

Her tough personality combined with her unique circumstances. The combination of these factors won’t produce a Midge Decter for America and this is an unpleasant realization. 

The human capacity to screw things up. With Midge, you can think low and not receive too much in the political area. Instead aim high and argue for good things. 

Midge felt gratitude for the United States of America. She had also noticed a change in the culture during the Sixties and Seventies. 

If you wanted to make changes, you should focus on disturbing culture. Midge was one of the intellectual ancestors of American public life. 

A true daughter of Israel who loved her Christian friend them make better Christian arguments in the public, she now rests in the bosom of Abraham.
