I wonder exactly how awful Tom Friedman must be at painting, sculpting, singing, tribal chanting, and for that matter all non-literary modes of communication. Because there has to be some reason he decided to make a living by writing. That reason certainly wasn’t ‘talent.’

From a column titled “Elvis Has Left The Mountain,” a headline that most meth addict home diarists can only dream of having published in the New York Times.

The Bernard Madoff scandal, of course, has only reinforced that loss of trust. His degree of betrayal — his alleged willingness to embezzle the life savings of people whom he had known his whole life — is so coldhearted that it charts new territory in human behavior.
