Why you don't have a political/social column, I don't know - or maybe you have? You have the knack of brutal summarization.

hear hear, though brutal is a bit strong.

dispassionate perceptions, elegantly (and wryly) expressed.

in one word, lucid.

I mean brutal in the sense, antagonistically, of not beating about the bush.  Lucid is a good word, but it doesn't quite encapsulate the full power of a TBG broadside.

But, as Zen advises us: "when you understand, you can leave the words behind."

I'm sort of demi-zen: half here and half somewhere else.
