In a capital consumed with crime and punishment, Robert Mueller III, a.k.a. Bobby 3 Sticks, keeps the president in his sights and Maureen Down writes a wonderfully literate article that combines great writing with real facts about just who Mueller is, and what he is doing. "We are in for an epic clash between two septuagenarians who both came from wealthy New York families and attended Ivy League schools but couldn’t be more different — the flamboyant flimflam man and the buttoned-down, buttoned-up boy scout.One has been called America’s straightest arrow. One disdains self-promotion and avoids the press. One married his sweetheart from school days. One was a decorated Marine in Vietnam. One counts patience, humility and honesty as the virtues he lives by and likes to say 'You’re only as good as your word.' And one’s president."
