  • Always searching for the best talent

    Perhaps you’ve noticed that the word “chaos” is used quite frequently by the national media to describe whatever is the then current state of the Trump White House. Now, the word “chaos” itself means “complete disorder and confusion, “ yet I suggest to you that this is anti-Trump code for any personnel, administrative, organizational or operational change from the day before.

    I walked to the nearby 7-Eleven weekly and brought neighboring papers — the Washington Post or the Richmond (Va.) Times-Dispatch, to name a few — just so I could thumb through their coverage and clip out advertisements to save for my own personal collection.

  • Who will lead?
