Paul Revere by Cyrus Dallin, North End, Boston

And on this Friday night...

after a tumultuous and what will be historic week in #45's administration, we should think about this passage from Shakespeare's Macbeth (via Eliot A. Cohen, The Atlantic):

Those he commands move only in command, 

 Nothing in love. Now does he feel his title 

 Hang loose about him, like a giant’s robe 

 Upon a dwarfish thief."

Read the rest of this magnificent piece on the inevitable and ignominious end to Trump and his presidency.

Very nice. Thanks for that.

Live to be the show and gaze o’ th’ time.

We’ll have thee, as our rarer monsters are,

Painted upon a pole, and underwrit

“Here may you see the tyrant”
