All politicians, said one of their number recently, 'have tried to convince people they were architects. If you listen to them speak long enough, you would be convinced that we were all born in log houses that we built ourselves.' The arb cannot bring this politico to book for his impious aspirations, since the quote, made during the presentation of the Pritzker Prize to Renzo Piano, came from William Jefferson Clinton, letting it all (so to speak) hang out.
