3 Sentences: Better to Reveal & Resign

Posted on September 6, 2018 at 6:47am 14 Comments

I tend to think s/he ought to reveal and then resign...his/her present course further undermines the foundations of functional government...no matter how good this may feel now, that feeling will not last...and we had worked out much of what s/he reports.

I get why the NYT did what it did and can pretty well condone its decision; but not so much the method of the writer (one or…

Recalling Joseph Heller, A "Catch-22" Insight for Our Era

Posted on August 30, 2018 at 10:30am 3 Comments

"IT WAS MIRACULOUS.

IT WAS ALMOST NO TRICK AT ALL, HE SAW, TO TURN VICE INTO VIRTUE AND SLANDER INTO TRUTH, IMPOTENCE INTO ABSTINENCE, ARROGANCE INTO HUMILITY, PLUNDER INTO PHILANTHROPY, THIEVERY INTO HONOR, BLASPHEMY INTO WISDOM, BRUTALITY INTO PATRIOTISM, AND SADISM INTO JUSTICE.

ANYBODY COULD DO IT; IT REQUIRED NO BRAINS AT ALL.…

HI Jon ~

I can't seem to get to my inbox, but thank you for your notes!

My one question about the piece itself, is, does the first paragraph seem to be outside the rest of the piece? I ask because it's not meant to, it's meant to read as the first paragraph *of* the piece. Someone asked me about that the other day....

Thanks again,

Anna

Glad to be here. I am looking forward to spending some time here this summer while I am off from teaching.

Thanks! I am looking for remembrances of Kim Gamble to share. He was kind to me.

Flint is a sad statement of America today, we must stop interfering in other countries - occupying them and destroying their infrastructure and REBUILD our infrastructure.  Too many towns in the USA are bankrupt or on the verge of bankruptcy.

Hello!

I don't know if you will recall, but I wrote on Open Salon under the name "eyespye" and was an avid follower of your blog.  I stayed with Open until they literally shut it down but have been reluctant to join Our Salon because I couldn't seem to find my "groove" (if you will) here.  Anyway, I went ahead and signed up if only to read/comment ... when I saw you were here ... kinda sealed the deal.  :-)  Hopefully the writing wall I hit a while back will fall away, and I will be able to contribute more than just a comment.

Thanks for your kind greeting ~

Listened to, i think your latest file. I enjoyed the section about grammar and poor writing on media.

 Reminds me of a UK member of parliament that tweeted "All immigrants must LEAN English".

Jon, what I see is very frightening.

People can't live in peace any longer. It's the prejudism and blindsighted viewpoints which are so scary.

Will it ever stop? What makes people behave this way?

It is usuallysomething else that triggers it. The Blacks are still the scapegoats of the USA.
