Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Black Friday

I am engaged in my annual Black Friday protest of staying home and eating leftovers.  I've been doing this for years - a man ahead of my time.

But then I read stories like this one and realize it's not really a joke.  We have always lived in a messed up world.  And while we fix some problems, we wind up creating new ones.

How in the world can we live in a world where we let the Waltons treat their workers like dirt while they become rich beyond the wildest dreams of avarice?
