You Can't Buy a Newspaper in Harvard Square Anymore!

How about this shocking news -- you can't find a newspaper in Harvard Square anymore. It's true. Any my goodness, how is that for a strange turn of events? The newsstands are all gone, and the bookstores don't carry them anymore. Magazines either.

What does this mean? Feel free to comment below to share your thoughts.

Thoughts on January 6, 2021

The attack on the U.S. Capitol brings these thoughts to mind:

  1. Conservatives spend so much time genuflecting before the shrine of Winston Churchill. Paradoxical that they've spent the last four years appeasing a fascist.
  2. Does anyone remember the Republican outrage over the storming of the U.S. compound in Benghazi? 10 hearings. A House Select Committee created solely for the purpose of investigations.  The endless disparagement of Hillary Clinton. Well, we now wait for the remorseless Republican outrage over a Republican president who, along with his two Senate accomplices (see below), fomented an insurrection and the storming of the U.S. Capitol and the killing of a U.S. Capitol police officer.


Here's my best go at a headline:

This is the face of American Fascism


And here's my best perversion of T.S. Eliot ...

This is how America ends. Not with a bang but a whimper.
