This week the GOP has taken away funding for women’s health clinics, the Senate approved a torturer to run the CIA, another group of school kids got shot up, and the President is in so many related scandals and corrupt dealings we can’t keep track. It will keep getting worse.

In 1996 I tried to recruit Tom Wolfe to write for Wired. He replied “maybe” in a handwritten letter to me as dandy as his white suit. (We tried, but never found a mutually satisfying subject. My regret; he was totally wired.)

Wolfe once explained his dandified wardrobe: Try to interview hippies or NASCAR fans dressed like one of themselves – they’ll instantly sniff you out as a fraud. Show up dressed like the Man From Mars, and they’ll tell you all you wish to know. People love explaining things.
