Human Nature—The Bad News

I had the pleasure of lunch with “Theodore Dalrymple

(Tony Daniels) on Monday.

He is one of the funniest men I know, an imp of mirth, always chuckling and

smiling, laugh lines all over his face. The regrettably-little-used English

word “merry” kept coming to mind.

God chooses some odd messengers to bring us the bad news about humanity. I

wonder if Dostoyevsky was as much fun to be around as Dalrymple.
