He surrounds himself with “bootlickers. He chronically overestimates his own value and underestimates the value of others.

I enjoyed your article on narcissism on the editorial page. I wonder if the writer was looking in the mirror.

Have you ever noticed when the news will have blaring headlines that so-and-so is a guilty crook on the front page, but when it is all proved wrong it is a small article on an obscure page? Any material…
