Several comments on the Brett Kavanaugh controversy:
1. Almost regardless of what happens after this point, both Judge Kavanaugh and his accuser, whose name does not need to be repeated here, will, for the rest of their lives, be identified with this moment. One of them correctly and one of them, possibly, wrongly.
2. The Washington Post says that its article, etc., were not done “at the eleventh hour” because it was only last week that the accuser was willing to have her name mentioned publicly. I wonder whether that means the Post would not have published this accusation if the accuser had not been willing to identified by name.
