This five-minute TED talk is by an important entrepreneur “You’ve Never Heard Of” who was in seat 1D when Captain Sullenberger landed his plane on the Hudson River.

It is a measure of how unhinged things have become that Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency hasn’t made a bigger splash.  Much of the country is just numb (he incited a mob to storm the United States Capitol? he sided with the Russians over the CIA?) . . . and the rest believes Hillary ran a child sex ring out of the basement of a Washington D.C. pizza joint (that has no basement).
I like this Amazon review, posted Monday, because it comes from a reader in the U.K., and thus someone not forced to chose sides.

5.0 out of 5 stars

Kingsley Flint: How incredible that an autocratic, mentally deranged and very dangerous person could aspire to the title of the most powerful man in the World. In modern times so many have forgotten the Second World War and how it came about. Michael Wolf gives an at once entertaining and alarming intimate picture of the ending of Trump’s presidency and the birth, perhaps largely due to Rudolph Giuliani, of the stolen election myth disaster now threatening the very roots of western democracy. The very fact that the book is so compelling and entertaining illustrates the danger of the Trump phenomenon, and also all the other autocratic governments and tendencies all over the globe. The human race has hypnotised itself through television and democracy has been corrupted by social media and it is this aspect of ‘entertainment’ that has us all transfixed like frightened or unconscious rabbits in the oncoming headlights of global disaster.

Have a great day.
