Paragraphs I shouldn't mind having written:

Another related concept is the concept of the asshole, as explored recently by the philosopher Aaron James of the University of California, Irvine. On James’s theory, assholes are people who allow themselves to enjoy special advantages over others out of an entrenched sense of entitlement. Although this is closely related to jerkitude, again it’s not quite the same thing. One can be a jerk through arrogant and insulting behavior even if one helps oneself to no special advantages.

-- ERIC SCHWITZGEBEL, in Nautilus

Give me a land of boughs in leaf
A land of trees that stand;
Where trees are fallen there is grief;
I love no leafless land.

To be fair, Trump is a perfect, almost stereotypical, comic-book villain.
The Canadian prime minister is on a variant cover available in shops and is an integral part of the story. His father was featured in a Marvel comic in 1979.

"The Mayor of Fairfax, Va., has been arrested after he got nabbed in a sting operation selling meth to undercover detectives in exchange for arranging group sex with multiple men."

But did he make the trains run on time? And what about the trash? And potholes?

Apparently, the only trash to be found near the Virginia home of Clarence Thomas is the mayor. Oh, wait...I'm thinking of McClean. Never mind.

Quote of the day du jour au jus. With gravy:

We need a leader with qualities that resemble those of Winston Churchill, and I believe that leader is Donald Trump.
-- Jerry Falwell

Falwell also advocates appointing The Tooth Fairy to the Supreme Court & Charles Ponzi to the SEC.

Where she walks,
Firelilies blossom and bombs explode
In anthills underneath the path. The toll
Is glorious among the hoplites. Drones
Behead themselves in homage; cynics rise
Buck-naked from their tubs and bow.

The correct Richard?  Observe the faultless tailoring of my 501s and the flawlessly untied Converse All-Stars.  Note the fountain pen ink stain on my shirt pocket.  How could I not be the correct Richard?
