Happy Endings

Belmont Club Ernest Hemingway believed that there were no happy endings. In his essay on bullfighting,  Death in the Afternoon he wrote that "all stories, if continued far enough, end in death, and he is no true-story teller who would keep that from you." That if the camera kept rolling after Shane rides into the sunset he dies from loss of blood. That after Eliot Ness cleans up Chicago in the next reel the Daley Family takes over and in the reel after that come Barack Obama and Rahm Emmanuel.  Was it worth it, Eliot?Hemingway ought to have known a thing or two about the subject of No Happy Endings. A supporter of the New Deal and once an object of KGB recruitment (Codename Argo), the great writer must have known the complementary proposition: that all idealisms end in scams....
