It is, frankly, an amazing story.
The indomitable patriarch who will shortly
be forced to plead age and infirmity;
his headstrong son whose eagerness
to do what his father would have done
will shortly doom him;
the loyalists who will unquestionably fall
on their swords; an upending of the moral
landscape in which the miscreants once
happily functioned; and the virtuous newspaper,
perhaps the last great newspaper,
with a last great editor, who, long waiting
for and never believing it would get
such an opportunity, now has
the devil in its sights.
