Headline of the day: Explain Trump? Let George do it


From CNN:

Publisher printing more copies of George Orwell’s ‘1984’ after spike in demand

  • The book publisher Penguin is printing more copies of George Orwell’s dystopian classic “1984” in response to a sudden surge of demand.
  • On Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning the book was #1 on Amazon’s computer-generated list of best-selling books. The list reflects hourly book sales.
  • The 68-year-old novel appeared on the list on Monday, hovered around the #6 spot for much of the day, rose to #2 by Tuesday afternoon and then hit #1.

The reason for the sudden surge?

Perhaps this clip from north of the border adds context.
