Some may appreciate this comic by Eli Valley - 'Schlonged' a wishful piece about Donald Trump's short presidency...
decidedly NSFW and may offend some among the faint-hearted.
I found it in 'The Best American Comics 2017' edited/curated by Ben Katchor & Bill Kartalopoulos
Never knew till today what Incels were.
I've noticed an upsurge in people using their personality prophylactically - their wilful disengagement turns them into dissonancy boys.
of possible interest from the Utne Reader:
Reagan repealed the Fairness doctrine requirimg media to present balanced news.
a faux pas otherwise known as the 'Fox Pass'
'Fair and balanced'!? Meh!
a frosty reception?
Confessions of a Traffic Engineer??
The road not taken…
“I’ll bet not half a dozen people can tell who was hit and where he was hit by my Road Not Taken,”
I think there’s something in this diversion for all of us…
The Herald it seems likes to employ ‘writers’ who don’t know standard English – I note Ms Hill Cone quotes verbatim from Kim Knight’s ’Canvas’ piece on Clarke Gayford, without bothering to correct the obvious mistake (nor did any ‘subs’ in the chain):
"…He grew up tying his own lures, making his own sinkers, pouring over books and committing the Maori and Latin names for fish to memory…"
I strongly doubt he was ‘wetting’ (sic) his appetite for knowledge, but was merely ‘poring’ over his books…
For some reason Ms Hill Cone (whose first name is Deborah – ‘Bee woman’ in Hebrew) also takes umbrage at Mr Gayford’s terminal vowel use in his christian name – ‘Clarke’ (means ‘man of learning') – a name that has been in use since the mid 1700s or thereabouts – and had a popularity burst in the 1950s and ’60s – it was a less popular choice in 1977 but still in common use…
What an odd thing to rail against!?
Clutching at ’strawman’ arguments perhaps?
The Press changes to the new paper-saving format on Monday April 30.
Heather du Plessis Allan and Deborah Hill Cone, that renowned tag team of the 'look at me, look at me' squad, hardly constitute a serious critique of anything.
Both have made interesting choices in their partners as well, but I'm sure they wouldn't want that looked at too closely - or publicly or commented on either...
Bereft of actual relevant and real social commentary opportunities they have resorted to barrel-bottom scraping for cheap attention seeking. SAD!
it was the pressing plants
Dodgy metal mothers!
It’s long overdue for a movie adaptation
