My stay in purgatory continues.
Every day another would-be president announces they're running and several more announce they're thinking about it.
Here, the way to become a presidential candidate is to lose an election for a lower office.
This is not unlike the way sports teams tank for higher draft choices.
Here, lawyers doing pressers outside a courthouse get shouted down.
Indictments are announced. Sentences are issued. People quarrel about the length of the sentences.
Here people are not to be persuaded but to be owned.
And we wait for the the report that never comes.
I sit and await my evaluation. I am not uncomfortable.
