Scandals involving every sort of impropriety have been blowing up over the last year. Virtually all of them involve Hollywood and Washington, D.C.
This year has shaped up, like no other, to be the year of the scandal. I wonder if the Chinese could, at this late date, retroactively change 2017 from the Year of the Rooster, to the Year of the Scandal? It’s probably too late. However, the way things are shaping up, 2018 will likely bring more of the same.
