The American Caliban
I propose a lottery. The tickets will cost $100. The lottery will go to fund medical care for the indigent. The winner of the lottery will get to spend 15 minutes alone with the President of the United States of America and a genuine Louisville Slugger baseball bat. I’m sure in other countries it’s possible to have a serious professional do the chief executive job. Here we get piñatas; I’m just proposing to treat them as such.
