Weekend Arts.

I went to see the film “Daniel Patrick Moynihan” last night. It reminds me that one of his better known quotes could have just as easily been said about him: “The single most exciting thing you encounter in government is competence, because it is so rare.” Sam Roberts of the New York Times has more to say.

Read (and watch) more on Bloomberg London winning the coveted Stirling Prize architecture award:

Best of late night.

On Kanye West’s visit to the White House:

“It’s like Trump is sitting across from his own Twitter account come to life.”
Jimmy Kimmel​

“That’s right, Trump met with Kanye at the White House, and whilst they spoke, both Trump and Kanye’s assistants looked at each other and said, ‘Man I thought my boss was nuts!’”
Jimmy Fallon
