The Corner

The one and only.



I’m not sure that the fact that someone disclosed a lot of other information about their personal lives should be relevant here: If we respect people’s privacy, doesn’t that mean respecting their choices about what they wish to publicize and wish not to? I’m also not sure about death. I don’t know that we all need to know about Abraham Lincoln’s sexual habits. Even dead presidents deserve private lives. But I’m expressing an inclination here, not a conviction.
