    This was the most powerful thing I’ve read in a long time. I hope that the story continues to build momentum.

    Me too, but I’m not holding my breath. Nino Scalia is a terrific writer, bless his heart, but he strikes me as the worst kind of ideologue: the kind who doesn’t know he is one. And so, when he says, “Show me such a man…” I think he means “Get me to admit that there is such a man…” which is verily a different kettle of fish.
