"I think it's a bit much to compare the the two, tho I understand your benign analytic intent. You put me in mind of a well-meaning but quite over-the-top comparison in a now-famous (infamous?) 1967 piece by Jeffrey Farber, "The Student as…"

"The real question is this: can I love the art but hate the artist? Can you? Yes, without hesitancy, though not without some reluctance. Does that sound contradictory? Sobeit, and I'm in good company. "Do I contradict myself?Very well then…"

Roman Polanski, Woody Allen, Bill Cosby, William Burroughs, Richard Wagner, Sid Vicious, V. S. Naipaul, John Galliano, Norman Mailer, Ezra Pound, Caravaggio, Floyd Mayweather, though if we start listing athletes we’ll never stop. And what about the women? The list immediately…

His Lies, an Update (Lies, Not Simply Minor Exaggerations/Under-estimations)

...from David Leonhardt, NYT

Trump ’s L i e s

Many Americans have become accustomed to President Trump’s lies. But as regular as they have become, the country should not allow itself to become numb to them. So we have catalogued nearly every outright lie he has told publicly since taking the oath of office. Updated: The president is still lying, so…

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 ~

JC Ramelle

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.
