Could that have made the country so crazy? The love of money, someone once said, is the root of all evil. And craziness? Manicky, that’s what it feels like, with more than a tad of paranoia. Maybe it wouldn’t have been so bad if some powerful churches hadn’t caught the rush for power, too. Biden should be appreciated for not just cashing in his marbles and going home. If there was ever a thankless job situation, he inherited it.
