FBI Director James Comey told Americans Tuesday everything they feared about Hillary Clinton's email scandal was true — from the 2,000 classified documents stored on her home-brew server, to the possibility that hostile powers could have gained access to U.S. secrets. The result? No charges. This will make a deeply cynical public even more cynical, if that's possible. What message does this send to an already disgusted American public? That the law really doesn't count for elites and politicians — one set of rules for them, another for us. Just one more travesty of law and justice.

Glamour hides difficulty and distractions, creating a false and enticing sense of grace. We see the dance, not the rehearsals; the beach resort, not the luggage and jet lag. There are no bills on the kitchen counter, no freckles on the pale-skinned star, no sacrifices in the promise of change.
