I like the columnists at National Review Online but they don't make it easy. Look at the numbers - slower than 88% of tested websites. Add to that the pop-ups, pop-unders, slide-arounds, and occasional autoplay ads and it quickly becomes more work than it's worth. I often make it my last stop because if anything is going to crash my browser, it will be NRO's Corner.
The Blink tag is the only thing that could make it more irritating.
