Quote of the Day (John Updike, on ‘The Rich Above You’)

"No matter how hard you climb, there are always the rich above you, who got there without effort. Lucky stiffs, holding you down, making you discontent so you buy more of the crap advertised on television." —John Updike, Rabbit at Rest (1990)

That quote explains a lot about the current election and its discontents, doesn’t it?
