Portrait of corruption

   The Times published this portrait the
   other day, and I thought it brought
   out so well the obsessive compulsions
   of the American President that I al-
   most overlooked the spell they've suc-
   cessfully revealed through the noble
   implement for dealing with them. I re-
   fer to that wand of superior magic,
   of instantaneous manipulation, in the
   President's anxious grasp. He, Jobs,
   and Zuckerberg have embedded their
   place in history with the abandonment
   of reflection, itself. They have very
   much less the more self-confident il-
   lusions of literacy. There will be no
   corrective mallet, only detoxification.
   We are witnessing a greatness, surely.
