Thoreau, who never wrote a shoddy sentence in his life, said that "A sentence should read as if its author, had he held a plough instead of a pen, could have drawn a furrow deep and straight to the end." You have drawn, Yael, a whole series of furrows deep and straight to the end. Your penultimate paragraph dazzles. Thanks for giving us a lesson in how English prose ahould be written.

Dear Mannie, the alliteration was in your honor - but of course - and placed just so, knowing that you would want to refer to the "penultimate paragraph" ... precisely.

Yael -- I failed to mention the bawling-kid picture. It's perfect: the spoiled brat as president of the United States. If someone had written a novel about a coddled whippersnapper who gets elected to the most powerful job in the world, every publisher in the country would've rejected the manuscript as "too incredible." It'll take a historian of the stature of Thucydides or Gibbon to figure out, someday, how the incredible became reality.

Thoreau, he never wrote a bad sentence in his life, he said, "a sentence should look like the author, he held a plough instead of a pen, can draw a groove depth, directly to the end." You have cause, yael, the whole series of groove depth, directly to the end. You are the second to last period of dazzling light. Thank you for giving us a lesson ahould how to write English prose.
