Morality comes with the sad wisdom of age, when the sense of curiosity has withered.
Although the odds are decidedly against it, Ezra is already considering building his portfolio of portraits that might be used in forthcoming American Presidential election campaigns.
From the outside, we’re aware that US campaigns require a few essentials (no, nothing silly like ‘policies’ or ‘consistent moral or ethical principles’). We need glossy photos, neat hair, a nice smile, and lots (LOTS) of money. So far, we have three of the necessary requirements, but we’re struggling on the fourth.
The trick that we haven’t quite figured is, how can you possibly raise that much bread without compromising principles?
No, I’m not sure it’s possible either…
