The Times’ David Leonhardt’s take on American Exceptionalism
I wanted to follow up on yesterday’s Around the Block, “American Exceptionalism in action!” (https://around-the-block.com/2020/06/28/american-exceptionalism-in-action/) by sharing today’s “The Morning” column from David Leonhardt of the New York Times. The column is headlined, “American Exceptionalism.”
In the piece, Mr. Leonhardt highlights the American handling of the pandemic, the Mississippi flag controversy and Russian bounties on U.S. troops. He also reports on Obama getting back into the fray (thank God): “People close to Obama told The Times that he has been wary of overshadowing Biden. But one Biden associate joked: “’By all means, overshadow us.’” as well as the mounting corporate boycott of Facebook (finally).
I’m honored to see that Mr. Leonhardt and I are on the same page, figuratively, at least. Full disclosure: the Times has not offered me any column inches.
