There’s something about the Jeffrey Epstein story that’s hellish. I had already thought this before the high roller accused of sexual abuse apparently killed himself while being held in federal custody. I became more convinced of it as the news of his death broke and promptly became the topic of seemingly every conversation. Conspiracy theories abounded. But we shouldn’t let this sordid debacle dominate our every waking thought.
Make no mistake, truth and justice are essential — in no small part because they expose evil to light. But let’s not get all dragged down into every excruciatingly dark detail. Let’s be better custodians of our minds, hearts and time.
