Richard Lawrence Poe recently observed the strange evolution in the person of George Soros. In “Soros Looks Ill,” Poe notes the difference in Soros’ appearance when he appeared before Congress on November 13, 2008, and how he appeared just ten months earlier.
Left: Soros before Congress, November 13, 2008; Right: Soros before, January 23, 2008.
Poe cites the fact that Soros has been celebrated for his vitality. He turned 78 in August. This photograph from the Congressional hearing was a startling contrast.
