I long for a time in the future when posts like Debra Dean Murphy’s, “dense with ideas and historical and literary references” (as she described the three to four hour political speeches of Lincoln’s day) would be more common. Indeed, it is one reason I have tried to explore here, in this blog, longer form blogging than I seem to do on my Tumblog. The time had long since arrived that our society has needed to really hammer things out, rather than dance around throwing soundbites as if they were punches. In the course of deciding things of import, many retreat, disgusted, rather than engage, informed. In any case, this is among the more insightful commentary I have read on the political scandals du jour, and hope you enjoy it, too.
