I read a lot, think a little, and now and then write down a few things.
Regrettably, whether it’s the least or the most, what disturbs me is that it is all the GOP ever does.
Actually, the terms (which were generous under the circumstances) were sent to Grant from Lincoln; all soldiers and officers were to surrender their arms and return to their respective homes and observe the conditions of their parole and abide by the laws of their individual states. But Grant slightly enlarged those terms by allowing Lee’s officers and men to keep their own horses and mules and by returning food and supplies that Sheridan had captured the day before.

It was about fifty years ago that I used to follow a film critic in the local newspaper religiously! She wrote her reviews with the hauteur of a Marie Antoinette toward a hungry crowd. Any film she praised, I avoided like the plague (1963’s Cleopatra comes to mind). Any film she panned, I cancelled all other recreations to attend (Taxi Driver of 1977). I eventually came to the conclusion that, to this reviewer, any film an audience might actually enjoy must perforce be a “bad” one, whereas any movie that utterly baffled, bored, confused, or (best of all) did all three to viewers (and reviewers alike) must be a brilliant one. Which all goes to show, even critics have their function, even if they don’t exactly know what that function is.

The terrible strain and pressure of public service demands some outlets denied those who benefit so greatly from their betters’ inexhaustible efforts to Make America Great Again!
