Quote of the week

“Ivanka [Trump] is no Princess Margaret and Jared [Kuschner] is not the Duke of Windsor regaling guests with amusing bon mots to a captive audience. No one wants to hear about Sarah Huckabee’s pies or Steven Bannon’s shirts.” A snob like that actually deserves a dynamic duo like them (and may shed light on how President Trump found the traction in the heartland that he did). Javanka can’t protest that they moderated the president, not after his past immoderate weeks of raging against democracy and conniving to subvert it. They can’t retroactively claim some profound but strangled ambivalence about his reign, not after her fangirl phantasmagoria at the Republican convention. No, they have made their bed. Lucky for them, the sheets have a serious thread count.

US Supreme Court Justices Debate

Reading a report on Slate of a debate between US Supreme Court Justices Stephen Breyer (moderate) and Antonin Scalia (right wing) one cannot but be impressed by the quality of the reporting. How many journalists in South Africa would be able to report on the South African Constitutional Court Justices in this manner? Maybe Carmel Rickard, at a push.
