Quotes Worth Quoting

From David Brooks' eulogy for Gwen Ifill:
These days it is normal to bash Washington, to want to “drain the swamp” and to attack the mainstream media. The populists are in and the establishment is out.
But I confess, when I looked at the front of The Times website on Monday and saw a photo of Stephen K. Bannon, on leave from Breitbart as chairman and rising in power, and then underneath it a photo of Gwen, who is passing from this world, I wanted to throw up. This is not progress and this is not good news.
 From Gail Collins, in a conversation with Arthur C. Brooks:
Reader email has informed me it’s way harder to leave the country than one might think. We Americans aren’t in all that much demand.
