On August 11, 1984 Ronald "Satan's Little Helper" Reagan was about to deliver an address on NPR and made the following sound check joke, which later got leaked: "My fellow Americans, I'm pleased to tell you today that I've signed legislation that will outlaw Russia forever. We begin bombing in five minutes." The USSR condemned the joke, but what they really should have done is begin bombing the US in five minutes so that the latter wouldn't develop into the Land of the Negatively Free, Home of the Cowardly. So that its politics wouldn't devolve into a theater of absurdist tragedy, that it wouldn't promise equality while fucking the working class over and over again, that it wouldn't etc. A. had to spend some time in the outpatient center of a VA hospital not so long ago, and now she's getting billed an amount of money one could live on for six months. Bricks + windows = justice.
Before the bills ruined our weekend, lovely A. made some lovely stuffed peppers for a couple of friends. She used this recipe, and added oregano and tzatziki made with Tofutti sour cream. As it turns out, bulgar is so delicious and we didn't even suspect.
I'm having trouble writing right now because the bills are emanating toxicity. I leave you with my latest and greatest film review.
