"How can we account for our present situation unless we believe that men high in this government are concerting to deliver us to disaster? This must be the product of a great conspiracy on a scale so immense as to dwarf any previous such venture in the history of man. A conspiracy of infamy so black that, which it is finally exposed, its principals shall be forever deserving of the maledictions of all honest men. . . . What can be made of this unbroken series of decisions and acts contributing to the strategy of defeat? They cannot be attributed to incompetence. . . . The laws of probability would dictate that part of . . . [the] decisions would serve the country’s interest."

you guys are tip toeing around these summer songs

how about a full volume summer of love power trio?

the debbil an' donnie trump

most retelling of the faust tale end happily. a great lawyer argues the case before a jury of the damned, or the incredible musical duel with the devil.

as part of my research for my new musical version of "the debbil an' Donnie trump" I wanted to get back closer to the original so I reread geothe. in german, and side by side in English translation. there is something I had missed in that classic comic I did the book report on in high school.



so anyway, my little musical seems to have an ambivalent ending. of course guliani gets to argue the case before andy Warhol and his gang at the studio 54 vip bar, not only does the disco ball reach full rotation as trump and mephestopheles spin the disco vinyl, but trump can dance out to curtain with a much younger version of gwen verdon



btw, wasn't "damn yankees" Nugent's band?



incredible rain in new orleans this morning

this is worse than many hurricanes.

if it keeps up we may all be doomed.

the "citizen" question on the census

aren't they really going to find that those agricultural counties, the red counties, are full of non citizens. this might shift more congressional districts to the urban centers.

vice president called to washington for "unspecified emergency."
