As my mother said to me when I defended the right of Nazis to march in Skokie, Ill., back in the ’70s: “You’re either for the Nazis or the Jews.” When I tried to explain that I was for the First Amendment, not the Nazis, my mother replied: “I’m your mother. Don’t give me that legal stuff. You should be for the Jews.”

William is too honest to be a politician, so a scientist then?

Speaking of politicians, I saw this on the web today, a phrase that describes a certain group of people:

" . . . the commentators and think tankers who hang out with the political class like victims of Stockholm syndrome . . ."

"My dad's not an asshole. And Holden's a killer. He doesn't get to judge other people."

"Your dad's kind of an asshole," Timothy said, his expression philosophical, his voice matter-of-fact. "And he's killed a lot more people than Holden ever did."

"That's different. That's war. He had to do it or else no one would have been able to organize everyone. We'd just have stumbled into the next conflict unprepared. My dad's trying to save us."

Timothy held up a finger like she'd made his point for him. "Now you're telling my why it's okay he's an asshole."

Russiagate became a convenient replacement explanation absolving an incompetent political establishment for its complicity in what happened in 2016, and not just the failure to see it coming. Because of the immediate arrival of the collusion theory, neither Wolf Blitzer nor any politician ever had to look into the camera and say, “I guess people hated us so much they were even willing to vote for Donald Trump.”

"You wake up and realise that your neighbours, your family or even that nice old lady that sells prawn fritters by the side of the road doesn't think you're human, or is okay with stoning," one Bruneian gay man, who did not want to be identified, told the BBC.

One, better funding for teachers, to attract bright graduates. Two, increased facilities for children, especially playing fields. Three, if any child misbehaves three times, they are blasted into deep space, with the parents provided with a lovely fruit basket, by way of consolation or celebration, depending on the child. Discipline is key.
