“I would rather be a swineherd at Amagerbro and be understood by the swine than be a poet and be misunderstood by people.” ― Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

To the Point

I offer a post-Memorial Day reflection on a holiday I have never liked.  I propose instead a sober, fearless national examination of the other 364 days each year on our endless imperial wars, with the last Monday in May reserved for a day off to experience what life might feel like without them.--JD
