On Manafort, Cohen, and Trump

Sometimes, people and/or events unfold in today’s news that leaves most in stunned silence, and a scintillating quote from a literary bard captures it with aplomb: “They were careless people, Tom and Daisy ā€“ they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together and let other people clean up the mess they had made.”

This is why great literature is always relevant.

Edith Wharton once wrote, “People either choose fear or love to guide their lives.” It seems as if 37 percent of the American public has chosen fear.

And so the horror novel continues.
