The King Lives

Much of the news of the day on any given day is not new at all. Today from Ottawa we are hearing a new version of “The King Lives,” a drama that goes back at least 10 centuries. It might seem an empty exercise, just a lot of fine language and posturing, until you look at the stock markets, duly reassured today after a mini-panic yesterday. The fact that we have seen these scenes before does not take away their meaning.
