I have received some nice letters from folks from both left and right who liked my recent Virtue of the mean blogpost.
I was talking about it with a conservative friend in Orange County this afternoon. I asked him if the two sides would ever be able to meet in the middle again?
His answer sort of surprised me. "No way," he said. "Too many powerful interests make too much money keeping us divided."
Cynical, but he may be on to something.
