This town... the title of a new book by Mark Leibovitch, chief correspondent of the NYT Magazine, about Washington DC. 

Welcome to the land of no eye contact.

Mark Leibovich

More specifically, the book is about Washington's political culture,

a pageant of body language,


the out-and-out panting

of people who

potificate for pay,


"can stagger through receptions with the best of them" (B. Obama),


"can can get in and out of a fund-raiser in 5 minutes" (H Reid),


never die or get older, only jowlier, richer, and more heavily made-up.

Haven't posted anything for a while
