GASP

Published October 20, 2019 by Nan Mykel

[Why does everything have to be changed all the time? Why? Why! Change is okay if an allowance is made to also keep the earlier methods available for old codgers or at least less swift folks–both of which labels I’ll own. I’d add an image if I could. I know we were invited to learn it, but why learn something you don’t want? I guess this is why…]

I wasn’t even going to write about that–the “GASP” title originally referred to an article by Phil Torres from AlterNet today, from Salon, and apparently from Current Affairs by Nathan Robinson. (Crediting posts is also getting more difficult).

I’m not criticizing the ultimate author of the piece, but rather the squabbling of current intellectuals, or possibly the need for the squabbling. I see dirty clothes on the clothesline. If Americans can no longer model themselves after their president, or leading intellectuals, or a majority of religious leaders or many of our neighbors, then who? Certainly not me, I guess… Some folks I admired have messed their pants, it appears.

But allow me one boast: About a year ago I came home to my condo/apartment and found a strange man sitting on my sofa. Rather than enter my apartment I remained in the hallway, leaving the door open to facilitate a quick escape, and said in a loud voice, “You’re in the wrong apartment,” at which he stood and staggered out, without a word or gunshot. (Yes, he was white, but I’m not a racist).
