Good week for:
Complicity, after President Trump gave his daughter Ivanka an official though unpaid White House position as a senior adviser, with a security clearance. In a TV interview, Ivanka said that “when I disagree with my father, he knows it” and that if “being complicit is wanting to be a force for good...then I’m complicit.”
Pink diamonds, after the most expensive jewel ever sold was auctioned off at Sotheby’s. The 59.6 carat Pink Star diamond was bought for $71.2 million by a Hong Kong jewelry retailer.
A quiet repast, after an Italian restaurant in North Carolina saw business double when it decided to stop serving children under age 5. Owner Pasquale Caruso said it ruins his customers’ dinners “when there’s constantly food on the floor, loud electronic devices keeping kids entertained, and small children screaming.”
