A Colossal Wreck

He banged away relentlessly against what he called “the criminal tendencies of the executive class,” writing in 2002: “The finest schools in America produced a criminal elite that stole the store in less than a decade. Was it all the fault of Ayn Rand, of Carter and Kennedy, of the Chicago School, of Hollywood, of God’s demise? You’d think there’s at least a Time cover in it.”

That he would be Alexander Cockburn (Co-burn, he was originally Irish) in his book A Colossal Wreck.   Cockburn was the last of a dying breed, and I need to pick up a copy of his meandering meanderings.  Nice find, JB.
