The Passing Parade: Cheap Shots from a Drive By Mind

"...difficile est saturam non scribere. Nam quis iniquae tam patiens urbis, tam ferreus, ut teneat se..." "...it is hard not to write Satire. For who is so tolerant of the unjust City, so steeled, that he can restrain himself... Juvenal, The Satires (1.30-32) akakyakakyevich@gmail.com

FOUNDATION GARMENTS: Kaelboel, which is available over on the blogroll with mustard and cole slaw on the side, writes that during the 1980's and 1990's the Dutch Secret Service, the BVD, financed a Dutch Maoist political party that also received support from Beijing. While I am sure that having a Communist Party of their very own is what every little Dutch boy and girl desperately wants for Christmas, I am not at all certain that I would feel the necessary level of fear dealing with a counterespionage organization that chose to name itself after underwear. A certain level of cognitive dissonance occurs, as when one buys Fruit of the Loom for the Vitamin C.
