To the Point

There comes a time in every epoch when pragmatism simply evolves into extreme acquiescence and surrender to the forces of apathy and do-nothingness, a guarantor of the status quo in all of its easy, democratic criminality--its fortress of greed. You could line up all the pols in the U.S. in a straight row and examine them head to toe and not find a single man or woman capable of admitting, never mind ending, the corruption of their vocation--Buddy Dooley

I was in Lincoln back in 1998 visiting a friend, and one day we drove up to the front of a modest but well-kept house in a typical middle-class neighborhood and my friend said, "this is of course the Starkweather house. Everybody who visits Lincoln should see it."

"Nice," I said, and we drove away.  If you're ever in Lincoln, don't miss it.
