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.

Upon Further Review

You know what hurts most about Orlando?

It doesn't hurt enough.  I've seen some moving eulogies at the Tony's and on Jon Oliver's show.  I've seen the inevitable changing of Facebook photos.  That'll work, thanks.

Before long, we will move on.  Something will catch our attention.  And then another mass shooting will kill dozens.  And we will change our Facebook photos.

But nothing else will change.

That's what hurt most about Orlando.
