Some news story today said the walls are closing in on
Donald Trump—a reference to Special Counsel Robert
Many years ago, when I was a boy, I saw a movie called
"Arnold" in which a couple of people were taking a shower
together and the walls were quite literally moving in closer
together; they were then promptly flattened like a pancake,
like something out of a James Bond movie.
I have always liked the phrase "the walls are closing in on
him," probably because it reminded me of that movie. But
now, in retrospect of many years, I realize the phrase probably
should not be taken literally. Is it more like you just feel the
walls are closing in, cabin-fever style?
