Historians may someday call this week’s convention-hall events — the speech-making and backroom decision-making — the beginning of a change that reordered the way the world works.
Indeed, many delegates may have already concluded just that.
Partly because so many world-famous political figures showed up. And partly because of the most unconventional art the delegates had to walk past to enter the convention hall: three clumps of twisted metal, formerly automobiles driven by three Iranian nuclear scientists, blown up by perpetrators officially unknown.
Beside each wreck were large photos of the scientists and their children.
No, we aren’t talking about a convention hall in Tampa — but one in Tehran.
