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

Temp Work

I worked part time for a monthly community newspaper shortly after I moved to Portland.  I always needed a second job, so one winter I did this through a temp employment agency.  The scale was slightly smaller as my crew changed the Memorial Coliseum from hockey arena to basketball venue--and back again repeatedly--overnight. This is Phoenix University Stadium.  The good seats are all temporary and spendy.  From the highest seats Saturday the players in the Final Four will look like tiny ants scurrying around on a minuscule dance floor.  Those tickets are also spendy.
