The Master and The Student

Stockton– Richard Nixon is gone now, and I am poorer for it. He was the real thing — a political monster straight out of Grendel and a very dangerous enemy. He could shake your hand and stab you in the back at the same time. He lied to his friends and betrayed the trust of …

Beware The ‘Gifts’ Of The Jinn

Otherwise known as Genies your wish, as they say, is their command. The results are seldom satisfying and often self destructive. This piece has some “category errors” (h/t Lambert).

Follow The Money
