In Olympic competition, events like figure skating or ice dancing, consider “degree of difficulty.” Successfully executing tricky, especially not previously attempted moves, get high scores from the judges.

Is corruption, so much a part of our political cliché, always to be considered as something one just has to live with like typhoons, unreasonable bosses, or needy relatives?
