Brokeback Mountain

When Karl Rove resigned I was on the road, unable to do justice to the moving photo below. I use moving, of course, in the sense of bowels.

There the two heroes stand, fighting back manly tears — George Walker Bush, born July 6, 1946, in New Haven, and Karl Christian Rove, born on Christmas Day of 1950 in Denver. East and West, then. So far and yet, and yet . . . so near:

Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet,

Till Earth and Sky stand presently at God’s great Judgement Seat;

But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth,

When two strong men stand face to face, tho’ they come from the ends of the earth!
