AFFABILITY is native to his spirit, as clear skin and good health habits to his person. His dress, his grooming, and the stylish deployment of his features reflect the harmony of a young man on excellent terms with his resources.
Liking and liked in return, a lover of sports and family circles, good cars and sun tans, his life style would, in ordinary political times, properly be called bourgeois. No one can call him that now, though his present version of the good life was known once largely in fraternity houses. Indeed, to the cooler political eyes of another era, a young man of his sort would have been so appraised: in truth, were it not for the company he keeps and the tempest for which he stands, a young man of his simplicity might be so appraised today. His membership in a radical lawyers’ collective has taken him far. He joined shortly after leaving law school, after a few years of floundering with dull cases in private practice. Though with traces in him yet more jock than visionary, the move marked a clear maturing point in his life. He took up his new work seriously, immediately, as he had always taken up challenges which interested him.
