In the movie by Stephen King called ‘Hearts in Atlantis’, a kindly old man named Ted cautions a young boy named Bobby to be on the lookout for ‘low men’. Mysterious figures who are seeking Ted so they can take him away and place him back under their control. When Bobby asks Ted what they look like, he tells him that ‘they move in groups and drive loud cars. That they cast long shadows and communicate with strange signs’…. ah, I thought to myself, Ted’s talking about Democrats!
