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

R.I.P./Anne B. Davis

This will sadden many of the young people I worked with in the restaurant business years ago who thought "The Brady Bunch" was the best thing that ever happened to their childhoods and television.

I could never argue with them because I didn't know the program.  I think I may have confused the concept with "Eight is Enough," or something.

Anyway, to all of the young people I knew back then, I'm sorry.  I felt the same way when Buddy Dooley first died years ago and then came back to Earth as a humanoid.
