The real reason is that, if confirmed by the Senate, Moore could become the Fed chairman — and that is a scary possibility. It could spawn a global financial calamity. . . .
Read the whole piece.
And have you gotten around to Michael Lewis’s The Fifth Risk?
And then there’s this: Michiko Kakutani’s The Death of Truth: Notes on Falsehood in the Age of Trump.
Up is down, black is white, truth is false.
Remember love and truth? Light and logic? Excellence and modesty?
