"Oh, magic hour, when a child first knows she can read printed words."

Tonight a very good friend sent me a CNN article titled, "Trump is incredibly jealous of one person." While the author Rachel Sklar outlined all the cares of state that Donald will be faced with, and probably unable to face, she wisely suggested the person he is most envious of is Hillary Clinton. After all Clinton has the admiration and votes of the majority of Americans. And while she doesn't have the Oval Office she also doesn't have all the responsibilities and sleepless nights that go with it. But what I found most disturbing about the article was not Trump's stupidity and arrogance which we know all too well, it was this photo. True, there are many photos of Trump, that show him as puffy and wrinkled and dour. But this seem even more frightening, more Dorian Gray, more tight-lipped, cold-eyed, wispy-haired, determined and dictatorial. And, surprisingly, more absolutely adrift and alone.
