After reading opinion columnists of an evening:
Columns like this are becoming ledger sheets for tonnage of garbage carried to landfills.
I wonder if there is any leftover value in the writings of the fourth or fifth estate to have any real effect on this morass of an administration currently occupying Washington DC and assorted golf courses frequented by drivers of the garbage.
Where are the intelligent, skilled, prescient, witty, and biting commentators who might inspire us with genuine options of thought that could spark a tipping point response to the sludge-entrepreneurs pouring stink on the people, constitution, and democracy once held in high esteem?
We need more than descriptive snark. We long for inspiration and careful investigation lending pragmatic hope to a dismal landscape.
Maybe the pen is no longer mighty. If so, we are left with the sword of insouciant mockery swinging with disdainful recklessness by chief and vice executive and cabinet sycophants unstoppably bloodying everyone within the wide arc of its grim thrust and grimy reaping.
