A Few Words About Nuns — And More July 11, 2023July 11, 2023 It’s a little embarrassing that my best investment — ever — was in a deeply sophomoric musical about 52 dead nuns (poisoned by tainted vichyssoise, so the surviving nuns had to put on a talent show to raise the money to bury them), called Nunsense. It played throughout the world and spawned spin-offs that included Nunsense A-Men (the all-male version), Nuncrackers, and Meshuggah-Nuns. The creator of all this silliness, Danny Goggin — a boyish 34 when I invested, now a boyish 80 — tells the tale here. Fun. Linda Greenhouse reviews John Roberts’ 18-year regime. Sad. Depoliticize the Court! The Laptop — How Credible Are Giuliani, Et Al, Really? A former Republican Congressman suggests there may be less here than the Right would have us think. I’m not sure it’s worth the full 7 minutes, but you’ll get the gist pretty quick. However the laptop stuff turns out, Hunter Biden has no role in the Administration, so who really cares? (Versus, say, Jared Kushner and his deal with Qatar.) Here’s 4 minutes on the Republican front-runner. who actually was the previous Administration and plans to be the next one. So we should care a lot. President Biden, by contrast — for all the Right makes of his occasional stumble — is all the things you’d want in a President: thoughtful, wise, and steady. Watch this past weekend’s interview with Fareed Zakaria and see if you agree. Sorry to give you so many links. Take the rest of the week off.
