    Why anyone would get into the business of “legally” selling guns is beyond me. But I hate it when gun sellers are punished for the essential service they provide. Stupid gun “laws”.

    My daughter is “allowed” to do dangerous things. Things that make my heart skip a beat. But I want her to be independent and competent. I don’t have “child scissors” for her to use. I let her dig in the dirt. I let her climb and jump. I only rescue her when she runs to me; not against her will.

    I’ve lived through some of those awful experiences that “break” people. But, maybe “broken” is a misnomer. Perhaps the real term should be “educated in reality”. Some of those things are things everyone needs to learn, and few of us learn from the pain of others.

    >but is Brooks suggesting that our misleaders know more, do better, and see more clearly than the rest of us?

    He’s probably just comparing them to himself. I long ago concluded that many journalists are the only people that could make most politicians look competent.
