The Contempt of the Fourth Estate

If there is a profession I despise more than politicians, it is journalists. More even than ambulance chasing lawyers. Indeed, ambulance chasing lawyers are paragons of virtue when compared with the other two –  they, at least, are trying to…

The sociopaths who walk among us

Jesse – is he mad or right? I think he”s right. Has he overstepped the mark? Not all sociopaths wield knives and knotted cords. Some wear suits, and are exceptionally intelligent and articulate, obsessively driven, and are able to use…
