“To come back again. To return as someone, something else. To get the opportunity to try it all once more. To be a creature that does not feel regret. To live one’s life within the same square mile. To be a thing that does not desire, that does not want, that does not fail.”
The good folks at apt not only published this essay on James Buchanan, fifteenth president and almost certainly the first gay man to hold the office, but they also nominated it for Best of the Web. Thanks, apt!
