第45 至48 題為題組
Below is an excerpt from an interview with Zeke Emanuel, a health-policy expert, on his famous brothers.
Interviewer: You’re the older brother of Rahm, the mayor of Chicago, and Ari, an extremely successful talent agent. And you’re a bioethicist and one of the architects of Obamacare. Isn’t writing a book about how great your family is a bit odd?
Zeke: I don’t write a book about how great my family is. There are lots of idiocies and foolishness—a lot to make fun of in the book. I wrote Brothers Emanuel because I had begun jotting stories for my kids. And then we began getting a lot of questions: What did Mom put in the cereal? Three successful brothers, all different areas.
I: To what do you attribute the Emanuel brothers’ success?
Z: I would put success in quotes. We strive. First, I think we got this striving from our mother to make the world a better place. A second important thing is you never rest on the last victory. There’s always more to do. And maybe the third important thing is my father’s admonition that offense is the best defense. We don’t give up.
I: Do you still not have a TV?
Z: I don’t own a TV. I don’t own a car. I don’t Facebook. I don’t tweet.
I: But you have four cell phones.
Z: I’m down to two, thankfully.
I: Your brothers are a national source of fascination. Where do you think they’ll be in five years?
Z: Ari will be a superagent running the same company. Rahm would still be mayor of Chicago. I will probably continue to be my academic self. The one thing I can guarantee is none of us will have taken a cruise, none of us will be sitting on a beach with a pina colada.
