Guest editorial

What with the multiple wives, the obesity, the megalomania, the yen to go after political enemies, the breaking of traditional structures for personal gain, and the overall petty meanness, Trump is basically Henry VIII...but if Henry VIII was the puppet of Ivan the Terrible.- Greg Olear
I don't know who Greg Olear is, or where he posted this, but now I keep wishing Charles Laughton was still alive to make the movie.  Oh, and he left out the ghostwritten book:  most historians believe Henry's Defense of the Seven Sacraments is actually the work of Thomas More, who he eventually beheaded.  (As Trump would love to do to Tony Schwartz.)
