Day of the Lapham

Harper’s Magazine literary editor Ben Metcalf writes:

"I would like to hunt down George W. Bush, the president of the United States, and kill him with my bare hands." [On Simple Human Decency, Harper's Magazine, June 2006]

We all have our dreams, but given Metcalf is your typically puny New York literati, it’s doubtful he could take Barbara Bush mano y mano. A more effective assassination method would be to finagle a White House dinner invitation for Harper’s editor Lewis Lapham who could then bore the President to death with his tedious and interminable blatherings.
