It is hard to keep up. Key figures in the House are now talking about completing the impeachment investigation and House vote before Thanksgiving!! As someone old enough to remember Watergate, I am astonished by the speed with which secret information leaks out. It took thirty years or so for Mark Felt to be identified as Deep Throat, the source for Woodward and Bernstein. It has taken days for the NY TIMES to publish identifying characteristics of the whistleblower.
I sit at my desk working up lecture notes for Tuesday's class and periodically nipping into the kitchen to check MSNBC or CNN for late-breaking developments.
This is the class in which I quote from the script of the Burt Reynolds movie Stick by way of explaining what capitalists do. Those with short memories or who are new to this blog can check my post for June 1, 2015.
