True both rich and led lives
Of well-to-do good looking young men
Both with beautiful wives
And ladies on the side.
Both had a connection to the Mob and to Roy Cohn. Both whose fathers were, shall we say, more autocrat than aristocrat, no way were they blue bloods. And both succeeded to the presidency with the assistance of an adoring press, or at least a media obsessed with them.
But there the parallel tale of the two ends. Do not look for high minded public service to be invoked in this inauguration speech, nor for young people to flock enthusiastically to go to the ends of the earth and out into space to do good for humanity.
No, we are no longer in, nor even near, that simply “more congenial spot for happily ever after than … Camelot”
