March of the Gazillionaires

In a season of alms giving, some news about the rich and U.S. politics. In my CWL column, I tried to get at the absurdity of our laws, Super Pacs, and the 2012 presidential candidates: Here: February 24 Commonweal.Trying to out-absurd the absurd is well, pretty daunting--even absurd. From Ash Wednesday's NYTimes: one man's $14 million absurdity.

Margaret O’Brien Steinfels is a former editor of Commonweal.
