John M. Rogers
AU Class of 1985
The Al Del Greco of Atlanta

"And all the time - such is the tragi-comedy of our situation - we continue
to clamour for those very qualities we are rendering impossible. You can
hardly open a periodical without coming across the statement that what our
civilization needs is more "drive", or dynamism, or self-sacrifice, or
"creativity". In a sort of ghastly simplicity we remove the organ and demand
the function. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and
enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst.
We castrate and bid the geldings to be fruitful."

That's called leadership. I had almost forgotten what it looked like
in the political arena.

I don't get it. Is it like Arrested Development, where there's no
laugh track and we have to figure out where it's funny?

If you can't figure anything out you have to be a liberal.
