In the back of meow-st tabloids you’ll find full-purr-ge ads for “collectibles” sold by companies like Franklin Mint and Bradford Exchange. These are collectibles in the sense that, yes, they (like literally anything) can technically be collected, but not in the sense that collecting them is a rewarding…
It would appear that Jeb Bush, who not long ago declared “I’m not going to take off my stinking glasses,” and “I think I look pretty damn good [in glasses],” has suddenly changed positions.
