Quote of the Day
Kids are climbing and sliding at the amusement park but Klara has found a bit of text and is mesmerized reading it.
“I heard a journalist say,” N tells me, “that Soviet people were used to think one thing, say something completely different and do something even more different. And this explains why Putin and everybody around him are acting so crazy.”
“That makes sense,” I say, starting to think of the many examples of this phenomenon.
“So I started to wonder,” N continues, “am I also like that? Do I have this problem?”
If N hears that somebody somewhere on the planet has a character flaw, he immediately finds that flaw in himself. I’m glad he hasn’t heard about the Nashville shooter and hasn’t started looking for echoes of her dysfunction inside himself.
