MY USA TODAY COLUMN FOR TOMORROW IS UP: Scandals Costing Us American Exceptionalism. “Enough breaches of trust — and I haven’t even started to hit all the scandals out there, by a long shot — and ordinary people will start to assume that the whole system is corrupt.

Plenty of countries operate on that principle. They’re just not as nice to live in as countries where the law has moral stature.”
