Back in the day, a man and his wife play- ed Monopoly with the wife of the chair of the psychology department. She was incredibly competitive but no compet- ition for the King of Get Out of Jail Free cards. The talking heads wondered why such a vindictive, uncaring person would offer gifts to such unworthy per- sons. It was concluded that because the person is who he is that it’s just his little thumb in the big eye of the country as he exits stage left — an indiscriminate assault on the rule of law is how a talking head put it. Seriously, like that's even news anymore, thought the man. On the other hand, the wife of the chair of the psycho- logy department usually graced the couple with a bottle of wine for them to sip as they played all those many years ago. Strange, thought the man, all these years later, I don’t ever remember refilling her glass.
