Businessweek to Congress: Grow Up

Businessweek Babies cover

This cover reminds me of the face slap Businessweek delivered early in the GOP campaign while the rest of the media was falling all over itself pandering to the Donald. In that instance, too, the larger media tendency was to indulge the drama.  (The scene also reminds me of this precious side chapel inflated by angels in the Church of São Roque in Lisbon.)  This blunt a media pushback to the acting out in Washington is sadly all too rare. (And then, I’m wondering if any pause was given before deciding to  characterize the developmental delay as spread equally across the chamber.)
