Watched the first episode of the new season of Ted Lasso last night, and this morning I see in the headlines a story about a rich Chinese tycoon who was arrested in a billion-dollar fraud scheme.

I know the slimy owner of the West Ham United soccer team is only a TV character, but his attitude and demeanor are probably not far removed from this guy, who I assume has gotten used to behaving with impunity and operating in the rarified air of assumed privilege. For him, nothing is out of reach and he can do whatever he wants because there’s nothing money can’t buy, or influence, or enhance or prevent or keep quiet.

May the accusations stick.
