I’ve Discovered a Liking for Piers Morgan, Now That He’s in the UK


Some years ago, I knew Piers Morgan as an obnoxious British journalist on American television. I rarely watch TV, so I mostly was aware of him when he outraged conservatives by his theatrical posturing over one issue or another, such as Newtown.
