Flashes of Zomby: Adults in the White House Edition
I miss Ronald Reagan. I miss a seriousness of purpose that doesn’t seem to me to be a put-on. I miss, as Driscoll notes, a President who quotes Chesterton.
If I may, Chesterton has another quote that might well fit our day: “We have had no good comic operas of late, because the real world has been more comic than any possible opera.”
Since I can’t really help myself, I have to add one more. You might find this timely as well: “When giving treats to friends or children, give them what they like, emphatically not what is good for them.”
