Well, We ALL Are “Safer”…For Now…Anyway…I Guess….
by Bodwyn Wook
Today as a result of US actions in the Middle East “America is safer” says President Obama.
It is because of the actions of “our military, AND [President’s emphasis – editor] counter-terrorism professionals”.
Seems to me, though, that there is no such thing as being “a little bit pregnant”.
And, whenever you hear the wornout term “professional” used in our completely new Postmodern historical situation, understand that this frantic reliance on stale shibboleths IS the death-rattle of the Late Modern.
Like “peer-reviewed” & “CV” & “continuing professional ed,” this jabber means now, precisely, nothing.
We Baby Boomers were raised in the already-bankrupt remains of that old time, only now to be dumped out of History.
And here we sit on the indifferent doorstep of the Future together with our oblivious tweeting, twitting & twerking grandkids….
Tossing the last hand grenades from out of our purses out at shadows in the fall Night.
