A lot of things are going to happen on this world but Tina Brown is never going to "get cute". Surgical skills like that simply don't exist.

BTW and FWIW, the word is "expatriate" not "ex-patriot". The author shouldn't rely on spell check for everything.

I’ve seen a lot of instances where people think the proper term is actually “ex-patriot” and don’t even know “expatriate” exists. It’s strange to them when I say “he’s an expatriate, but still a patriot.”
