Rubicon Crossed


There is a depression running through me like a low-level chronic fever. Watching the accelerating pace of our nation's self-degradation has evoked all sorts of paralyzing and surprising emotions within me. One sad example is that, for me, the '80's was my "ascendant" period, and I reached Peak Mike somewhere in the early nineties, when the nation of the whole was embarking on its last hurrah. So I have been getting flashes of nostalgia for the zeitgeist of that period - of the eighties, for shit's sake! - which is wrong and horrible on so many levels.
