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)

MADONNA, AT IT AGAIN: I see in the paper that Madonna now has a mock crucifixion in her act, which I don't really understand, since I thought she was semi-Jewish now. Once upon a time, people spent a lot of time worrying about she made fun of Christian symbols for shock and profit, but the thing of it is, when you’ve done it fifty or sixty times before, the shock value sort of wears off. If she really wanted to stir up the hornets, she should come out singing "Like the 72nd virgin, touched for the very first time." Madonna still keeps at it, God love her; she's a trouper, you’ve got to give her credit for that, even if the old gray mare, she ain’t what she used to be.
