Having trouble picking out my favorite part of @IChotiner's interview with Victor Davis Hanson. Truly a remarkable document. newyorker.com/news/q-and-a/t…
"What I am getting at is he looked at the world empirically."

"Empirically?"

🤣
"Right, people hear a story about someone knocking on your door wanting an ob-gyn and they say that is anecdotal."
"I don’t know what [the Charlottesville protestors'] hearts are like, but they did not want statues torn down or defaced."

"History buffs, really."
"Honest, authentic."

"I don’t know about honest, but authentic and genuine. Honest in the sense that—"

"The larger sense."

"Yeah."
"He said, 'I want wealthy people.' I went to Palm Beach and talked to wealthy Jewish donors and Cubans, and they said the same thing to me—'He likes rich people. He doesn’t care what you look like.'”

"Egalitarian, yeah."
"No, I mean, if you are going to attack a woman as ugly you want to make sure you at least have public sympathy on your side."

"I think so. There are certain women that may be homely."
I am nominating @IChotiner for a Pulitzer.
