At work today, I asked several friends if they were aware that Gore Vidal had passed away yesterday. Three in a row responded, "Who?" So, I decided to add that by way of some weird, surreal coincidence, Rush Limbaugh also choked to death on a baloney sandwich. All said, "No, really?! I said, "Well, really ... no."
If you want to know why we are so royally fucked as a people, that is a good place to start. So, I guess I'm back. A tad bit earlier than I thought I'd be, but more on all that in the next post.
