Donald Trump Jr. received $50,000 in speaking fees from a group with ties to Russia

Christ! Is there no end to it? Read the report of yet another Russian connection—not a strong one, but a lot of loose ones will do the job, as Robert Frost noted in his sonnet:

She is as in a field a silken tent
At midday when the sunny summer breeze
Has dried the dew and all its ropes relent,
So that in guys it gently sways at ease,
And its supporting central cedar pole,
That is its pinnacle to heavenward
And signifies the sureness of the soul,
Seems to owe naught to any single cord,

But strictly held by none, is loosely bound
By countless silken ties of love and thought
To every thing on earth the compass round,
And only by one’s going slightly taut
In the capriciousness of summer air
Is of the slightlest bondage made aware.

Critical analysis here, if you’re interested. In college, we had to diagram the first sentence and probably the second as well.
