“Political conflicts are merely surfaced manifestations. If conflicts arise you may be sure certain powers intend to keep this conflict under operation since they hope to profit from the situation. To concern yourself with surface political conflicts is to make the mistake of the bull in the ring, you are charging the cloth. That is what politics is for, to teach you the cloth. Just as the bullﬁghter teaches the bull, teaches him to follow, obey the cloth.”
— William S. Burroughs, Conversations with William S. Burroughs
Welcome to Monkey Wonderland
I’m waiting for a train to pass.
It’s going so fucking slow. It makes me think, are trains ashamed of the train wreck in New York?
Is this train going so slow to say “see, not all trains are irresponsible. Brad, please don’t judge us trains by the actions of that bad train in New York”.
ANOTHER ROUND OF SALTY SORROWS FOR EVERYONE!
I wish I could collect gallons of your tears - tears from sorrow.
I would boil your tears down for the salt.
I would use it to salt the glass of a new mixed drink. A Salty Sorrow.
