Dear Wafers, Lurkers, and Assorted Shirkers:
Once again I have no great insights to share at this point, being buried in my own work. In any case, let us continue documenting the ongoing collapse of the American empire, evidence for which confronts our eyeballs on a daily basis.
Oh well, I just remembered an old socialist joke I thought I might as well share with you:
A bunch of poor pig farmers in Upstate New York finally got tired of being exploited by the rich. So they gathered all of their pigs in a dozen or so trucks, and drove down to the city, to Tiffany's Jewelry on Fifth Avenue. There, they opened the truck doors, and tossed all of the pigs onto the sidewalk in front of the store. It was a classic case of throwing swine before pearls.
