From the icy sidewalks of Francis Avenue, Cambridge, Massachusetts, the booklined libraries of Harvard professors look warm and inviting on a brisk January Saturday. One of these libraries belongs to John Kenneth Galbraith. It contains all 20 of the books he has written, and above one bookcase there is a needlepoint with the author’s operating philosophy inscribed: MODESTY IS A VASTLY OVERRATED VIRTUE.

There are certain things you should know about Robert Stanfield, some tardy facts before you say good-bye to him on the TV screen from the Ottawa ice arena while his colleagues pick a successor. He’s been with us for nine years, after all, and it’s about time you got to know him.

The dirty rumors come true in the end. That’s the dangerous news. It’s that the loudmouthed smart face at the end of the bar was right all along. The tavern cynic who knows it all and knows it’s all bad, the blabbing hairdresser with her absurd spoutings about misbehavior in high places, the paranoid leftist editor with his fantastic charges about telephone taps, killers and crooks in the capital . . . those creeps actually turn out to have been right.
