Thanks for the David Brooks piece. Mr. Brooks said in one succinct editorial what I have been trying to say in more than two dozen Medium articles. David is a center right guy and I’m more or less a center left person. As such we have much more in common with each other than we do with the political extremes.

This particular editorial will likely go down as one of his masterpieces.
