THE CIRCLE SHALL NOT BE BROKEN

By God! I sat up with a start this morning, around 2:04. It hit me, “Why are we all pretending this is politics…when it’s revolution?” Their media, our media, their talk-show people, our talk show people, all have to pretend to be matter-of-fact about a situation that is probably ...
