The Education of a Pantload

From Holden:

Jonah blathers about Yalta:


I’ve thought about it and thought about it. This is probably the last chance for my entire career as a writer (“Which should be winding-down any moment now” — the Couch) to bang my spoon on my highchair about the folly of Yalta.

This was a bread-and-butter topic for conservatives for two generations, but vanished with the fall of the Berlin Wall. It’s like Haley’s comet, how can I take the chance this news peg will ever come back in my lifetime?

Pssst. Jonah. If it’s really “like Haley’s comet”, then it ain’t comin’ back.

On the other hand, if it’s like Halley’s comet, then it will be back in 2062. Jeebus help us, you may still be around then (can’t say the same for your “writing career”).
