In 1999 a professional football player named Cecil Collins was caught climbing through a window with intent to rape and was sentenced to prison. The unusual part was that he was on the Disabled List with a broken leg. That was my go-to example of admirable personal qualities turned to bad ends until yesterday, when John McCain bravely overcame grievous health problems to vote to let millions of people die.

Elitism has come to mean “rule by rich people who went to Ivy League schools.” Now, meritocracy is coming to mean “rule by rich people who went to Ivy League schools.” Wouldn’t it be nice to have a word for “having things done by people who are good at them”?

Massachusetts wants to put you in jail and steal your car for having a secret compartment you might use for ritually unclean substances.
