Call it schadenfreude, but…

I can’t help but feel the slightest bit of happiness at the news that Robert Novak has a brain tumor.  Yes yes, insensitive I know.  But as Donald Draper, the main character in AMC’s Mad Men says, “The Universe is Indifferent.”  And when a guy who just hit a person with his car and didn’t notice gets a brain tumor, one starts to venture outside the narrow constraints of Draper’s proposition.

Maybe the universe isn’t so indifferent after all.

One response to “Call it schadenfreude, but…

  1. Brings to mind what Clarence Darrow, the great lawyer, once said: “I have never killed a man, but I have read many obituaries with great pleasure.”
