I’m generally unconcerned about the legal battles or the orange disease’s attempts to thwart democracy. But in my quiet moments, I think about a scene in the Thomas Crown Affair, when Catherine Banning realizes the “failed” theft attempt was really a distraction.
Catherine Banning: What makes you think they failed? Maybe it was a successful robbery. Maybe they were setup to fail.
Detective McCann: Why?
Catherine Banning: Diversion, make a lot of noise over there so over here in this room you can take a hundred million off the wall and waltz right out the front door. Oh that’s good.
So I needed to listen to Bauer today.
