An urgent, global curiosity

Shakespeare brought it up too of-
ten to be confident of denying it.
It's true. Nobody really likes to
look upon derangement in a nominal
head of state even today, for fear
of being taken for a snob, assert-
ing sanity as yet another elitist
foible. Is this timidity now some
further triumph of deviant play, a
canny ploy of misdirection? Juries
are mulling this question openly,
at least, in more and more places
known for critical self-awareness.

As the subject of their study was
heard to remark to the Associated
Press, one doesn't like to look.
