Here’s a summary of the latest developments as of Oct. 6

    “Nothing in the world is harder than speaking the truth and nothing easier than flattery.”

    –Dostoevsky, from “Crime and Punishment” (1866)

    Amen. Orange Trump’s relentless self regard and flattery of fools comes quickly to mind. Sadly, he also spreads an affliction that causes good people to become so cynical that they cannot discern praise from flattery. Caution becomes fear, doubt, and despair. Sad.
