The Chickenhawk

Eyeballs have dwindled to an all-time low. This, even though the entire Free World seems to be going our way. Weed & gambling are legal. What could go wrong? All we need now is extra gambling money and lots of snacks.

Mired, once again, in the JFK conspiracy a friend recently suggested we’re so stuck in the past, we’re missing the present. More right than wrong the present seems like a speeding bullet, or bullets, moving too fast to see, or comprehend, coming from all directions. Not unlike the ambush in Dealey Plaza.

We reminded our friend of (Spanish philosopher, George Santayana’s) someone’s famous quote paraphrasing:

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. To covet truth is a very distinguished passion. 

Dwindling eyeballs is another subject altogether. Some of it is our fault, maybe all of it. But some of it might not be.

But eyeballs aren’t all that matter either.

Fat checks might have been the dream but more than that has been the race. We’re still running.

The JFK case, in our humble opinion, has been solved. We, of course, had nothing to do with the solution.

We’re still interested in the details.

Websites, companies, friends and enemies have come and gone. We remain.

Another good thing, we used to get hundreds of complaints. Not so much anymore and it’s just as well, we’ve always been constitutionally critic-adverse.
