Horrors

February 10, 2016

by Sallie Bingham

It may seem strange to say that last night’s New Hampshire victory, by twenty points, of an apparently harmless, idealistic old man is the beginning of the release of horrors. But I think it may be.

We expected his victory in Vermont and New Hampshire but not by this latest, large percentage. We can understand how his message of radical change appeals to young people and to our increasingly large population of disenfranchised white people—disenfranchised by a political system that ignores them in the same way it has always tried to ignore other minorities.

The Return of the Prodigal

February 02, 2016 The Return of the Prodigal Son (1773) by Pompeo Batoni

by Sallie Bingham

The return of my particular beloved prodigal—my youngest son, absent for some time—brings me feelings of gratitude and relief even as I recognize that he will soon be on the road again, and indeed he left long before dawn this morning. Those most worthy of love sometimes seem to be the ones who have the greatest difficulty feeling it.
