Too many have dispensed with generosity in order to practice charity. — Albert Camus (Yes, I suppose it’s worse now than 60-odd years ago.)
Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired. — Robert Frost
It is not enough to have a good mind. The main thing is to use it well [like Big Finance’s “Best and Brightest”]. — Rene Descartes

Because no one else is close to excite the people who will be voting like she does. And with no alternative — duh.

The Times’ new normal: Misreport old news and slap it on the front page. There is no story here and it’s incompetently reported. (Like the fine job the Times did in the run-up to the Iraq
