It’s been awhile since I’ve done any sort of expose on the state of the union. However, reading this makes me want to.

What I love about Tom Wolfe: his prose flows with factual power and the skepticism of a child, not of the nihilist or contemptuous cynic, and he doesn’t stick to exposes. No. He’ll toss in philosophy, literature, and plenty of mot justes β€” for the sake of realism, not ostentation.
