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..." " 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)

A COROLLARY INFARCTION: If I may put aside my clown’s outfit for just a moment, I’d like to say something about my previous posting here. I think it says something about the infinite malleability of language that those people who most vociferously defend an otherwise indefensible status quo that damages children, especially poor children whose parents are the least able to protect them from such abuse, are called liberals, whereas those who regard a system that damages such children as shameful and call for radical changes in that system are regarded by these very same liberals as retrograde conservatives of the very worst sort.
