A Sign Of Change?

Usually, when I quote reader Ed Surgan in one of my missives, it is a prelude to a rant on how misguided I think his position on a given topic is. But not today.

In his most recent Letter to the Editor [“Badly Served,” Letters, January 14], Mr. Surgan writes, “I can no longer condone or excuse the deep defects in Donald Trump. His behavior since the election has descended into a darkness that has done great harm to his supporters, party and country.”

It took courage for Mr. Surgan to write those words. It is not easy to admit that a person you have admired for so long is no longer worthy of your support.

President Trump has famously boasted that he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and his followers would still support him. Until now, that has not been an idle boast.

But perhaps things are changing.
