Bobby Jindal: Obama would strip Americans of the right to incur massive debts acquiring a useless degree…

SEK: Yes, much appreciated.
CASHIER walks to different, special, somewhat faraway place and returns with a clear bottle of Absolut.
CASHIER: This one?
SEK: No, the blue one.

When I was teaching The Selling of the President 1968, I sent McGinniss an email asking if I could ask him questions. He responded that he’d be more than happy to answer any I had, as well as any my students might have, which led to a series of exchanges between him, me and my kids.
People that generous with their time are rare, and should and will be missed.
