You Come Too

October 13, 2016

By Sallie Bingham

“The Pasture”, an uncharacteristically sweet poem of Robert Frost’s—one of the handful given to grade school children to read—ends each of its two stanzas with the line, “You come too.”

Frost wrote of cleaning a spring and tending to a new calf—“You come too”—with the promise that it wouldn’t take long, that hint of the over-busy world to which we all belong.

Too Much

By Sallie Bingham

I’ve avoided writing about what is going on in our presidential election, not wanting to focus more attention on this ignoble display. But Sunday night was too much. I didn’t know at the outset of the Town Hall meeting (to give it a pious New England name it didn’t deserve) that Donald Trump had invited two of the women who, years ago, were entangled with Bill Clinton legally and sexually to be interviewed by reporters and photographed.

At Last

September 27, 2016

By Sallie Bingham

Last night’s debate—hardly even a debate, in the usual sense—proved to me and to many others that we have a winner in Hillary Clinton, a “Happy Warrior” in her bright-red suit and gleaming smile, as a commentator called her, a winner who is happy in winning and who brings joy to my heart—and to many others.

Her nomination, and soon, her election (by no means assured unless we all get out there and phone bank and canvas and vote) measures a big, although nearly invisible, shift in American culture, one that was taking place during the two decades when some of us felt we were stranded in the old way.
