Our faithful reader Charles asked me a few days ago why I had written nothing about Betsy DeVos’ appearance before Congress.

She has taken steps to harm children and college students but she never says flat out what she did and why she did it. Her interview with Leslie Stahl on “60 Minutes” was not atypical. She was primed and ready to dodge questions, not to explain anything candidly. She continues this pattern and I find it painful to watch.
