April 13

Facile is good, they say,
if you want to be
easily understood;
if you want to make
it appear that hard
work was easy, as in
playing Chopin; if you
want to show a fluent
command of language,
for example; or if you
want to steer away
from anything more
than one-dimensional,
if you want to obscure
the innate complexity
and difficulty of most
things—in other words,
if you are a politician.
