Now we know

Smart guy
Every day for the past five years or so I have received an email from a US online news service 'the Daily Beast', named after the newspaper in Evelyn Waugh's classic satirical novel 'Scoop' and edited by British journalist Tina Brown, wife of my former editor at the London Sunday Times, Harold Evans. Today, for the first time in all those years, I opened a link to one of their news stories. It is a remarkable article by the novelist and social commentator Tom Wolfe (pictured above in his trademark white suit). I draw this piece, 'Eunuchs of the Universe' to your attention, because it affects us all.
