“Suspect nostalgia and equally suspect admiration for decay.”

“There is a collie here whose only countenance is the business-like countenance of a herder.  He is unleashed, and he is unwavering in the anti-personal way he circles the gathered crowd.  He has no time to be petted as he weaves through the people’s herd.” — For those of you who have been allergic to the arguably necessary but gratingly chalky rah-rah language of the Occupy movement, here is Anne Boyer in Lana Turner writing about Kansas City and making some good old fashioned song outta that fizz.

      KC is Charlie Parker, and that is extra legal.


      Ask the cops who haven’t had a raise in three years, and whose pension and benefits are probably water on the moon, and who drive the same streets and send their kids to the same schools as everybody else:  why you gotta be there and not here?

      Why you gotta be rhetorically ‘conservative’ when you’re operationally progressive?

      Why you gotta vote right when you live left??

      That is a clean, sharp blogicle.
