Quote of the Week: That Kind of Man

Here was a man who moved through life believing that he was entitled to forget it and start over, to shed women when they become difficult and allegiances when they became tedious and simply move on, dismissing those who quibbled as petty and "judgmental" and generally threatened by his superior and more dynamic view of human possibility.

 - Joan Didion, an essay I am deliberately not saying the title of, We Tell Ourselves Stories in Order to Live, p.219

Now who could that be? How many men could that be? This essay is from 1976, but most of the examples it brings to my mind are much, much more recent.
