Wanna know the difference between Pulitzer Prize winning journalists like Jesse Eisinger and everyone else? Its this opening sentence:

 

“With their simultaneous display of hubris, remorselessness, incompetence and corruption, the banks have finally ignited a modicum of courage in banking regulators.”

Pro Publica (also today’s NYT)

 

So awesome !

    Beautiful writing, indeed.

    The title brought to mind Joan Didion’s 1968 collection of essays, Slouching Towards Bethlehem.

    Quoting from the Wikipedia article, “In her preface to the book, Didion writes, “I went to San Francisco because I had not been able to work in some months, had been paralyzed by the conviction that writing was an irrelevant act, that the world as I had understood it no longer existed. If I was to work again at all, it would be necessary for me to come to terms with disorder.”[1] ”
