I thought this was describing some to-do on the Brit Dancing with the Stars, featuring a cast of celebrities I’d never heard of. Apparently, all of these people (Maks! Hope! Len!) are American. Wow.
If I had the time, I would start cataloging these things. They’re remarkable.
I know it’s unbecoming, but this drives me crazy every time.

It confirmed everything. It justified everything. Every violence and lie, every time he’d cheated on his wife. It allowed him to collapse inside, to melt toward awe and dread.
