Sam Harris dropped early today because the potato was too hot to hold. His discussions with Anne Applebaum and Juliette Kayyem are deep and detailed. The Deep State, which I have never been a fan of, not even when I worked for them for 35 years one time, may save our ignorant ungrateful asses. They may turn out to be the checks and balances that actually work. There may be untapped deposits of common sense, competence and emotional maturity lying deep beneath the Shit Ripple surface of our government. But, alas . . . I can evade the Void no longer. As it is I'll end up eating breakfast at Taco Bell at four in the afternoon. Again.
