From the editorial page of the New York Times:

“Last week an openly gay man, Eric Fanning, became secretary of the Army. Read that sentence again and contemplate what it reveals about how much and how quickly American society has changed.”

From Times op-ed columnist David Brooks:

“We expected Trump to fizzle because we were not socially intermingled with his supporters and did not listen carefully enough.”

Read that sentence again and contemplate what it reveals about how much and how quickly American society hasn’t changed.
