Comey’s Firing: Do We Live in a Kleptocracy? by John G. Messerly

Every time I sit down to write about something I want to write about—like how to find meaning in a secular age, or ponder the imminent birth of my new granddaughter—I find my reverie interrupted by the political turmoil surrounding me.
