I’m a sucker. I admit it.
One of my failings is believing people who firmly shake my hand while looking me squarely in the eye. Indeed, it is a normal tendency many people have, which makes us vulnerable to being duped by those who prey upon our confirmation biases. We selectively hear what we want to hear, and disregard the rest.
And so I had high hopes for President Donald Trump’s new 10-year $1.5 trillion infrastructure proposal. I should have known better.
