Welcome to the monkey house, Drifty.

Drifty -

But Dame Noonington of the Brooklyn Nooningtons was in good form today. I think she finally got the worm in the Tequila bottle.



I often imagine Hell to be endless repeats of the Sunday shows (interspersed, of course, with eating shit and being sodomized by Henry Kissinger for comic relief).

They were never that good (the only thing worth watching on Sunday morning was Charles Kuralt's show), but they all made a serious swerve into the ditch after 9/11. Through all of the Zeroes, they were sort of a cross between the Three Amigos (Holy Joe, Grandpa Walnuts and Huckleberry) and State Terrorism `R Us.

Back around 1960, a group of Soviet academics was invited to the U.S. (part of a belated and belabored exchange program that resulted from Nixon's debate with Khrushchev), and they were pretty much told, go where you like and see what you like. A few weeks later, they got together, compared notes, and expressed amazement with the United States. "With a free press, how do you obtain such conformity of opinion in the population?"

If anyone here had been honest with them, they would have replied, "the Sunday morning news shows, of course."

Glad to see you here, Driftglass - I'm a fan.


Like the world, the Internet just keeps getting smaller. :-)

Montag, sounds like you're describing one of the lesser circles...once you get to REAL hell, they cut out the shit-eating and Kissinger sodomizing...
