    Trump has been exactly like Zaphod Beeblebrox from Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. All impulse & ego with little thought to consequences.

    “As an author of fiction, its my job to be convincing. Its my job to make up things that would convince you that they could really happen.  Real life has no such obligations.”

    Man, that is a great line.

    Neil, you’re a great writer (and a somewhat shaky TV screenwriter) but you FLEW TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PLANET during your ‘lockdown’.

    Neil Gaiman is an amazing writer, the older he gets the more it feels like he should be wearing a knitted sweater and surrounded by cats 😅
