    Movies and TV form a continuum with the News. Kennedy and Reagan were camera-ready but so are all candidates and all presidents these days. Does Clinton bite

      Movies and TV form a continuum with the News. Kennedy and Reagan were
      camera-ready but so are all candidates and all presidents these days.
      Does Clinton bite his lip only for close-ups? The dramas of
      Shakespeare reside on a continuum with Law and Order. Bush swaggers
      like a cowboy. Mrs Trilling wrote much theatre criticism, but she could
      not defend herself against the vulgar. All she had was "sensibility."
      But her book on Mrs Harris strikes me particularly because she wrote it
      when she was 75, because she could not have written it before Capote's
      In Cold Blood, and because, although she assembled various collections
      of her reviews and articles, it was her only book.
