Mrs. Todger's Eyes

Theodore Dalrymple, "The Psychology of Modern Celebrity," Taki's Magazine (April 19, 2015):
And of course the eyes that are cast upon them are simultaneously adulatory and sadistic. Those eyes remind me rather of Mrs Todgers in Martin Chuzzlewit, who had affection beaming in one eye and affection out of the other.
Read "calculation out of the other." A minor blemish in an excellent essay.
