To the Point

An empty shell as president, a torturer running the secret government, Education run by a privileged amateur, and the EPA pivoted to environmental destruction for pay, I’d say America is actually sporting a government that is representative of the American government.--Upthepeople/CommonDreams

St. Clair/Tribute to Cockburn

Jeffery St. Clair remembers, in this moving piece, his pal and fellow rebel Alexander Cockburn, who died July 21 last year.

Cockburn would have been 72 today.

Few writers in my lifetime have made as much sense to me as A.C., few are as lucid, funny, as twisted by irony and controlled rage, as stoic and certain, and as gifted as he was with the ability to coolly eviscerate the loathsome in humanity.

He was not without his foibles, as St. Clair notes, but he was blessed with genius.
