Middle Class: A Question At The Rogue's Forum

Rosie McMaffrey's

Excerpted from my post in the comments thread at The Rogue Columnist: Can Liberalism Be Saved?
I've got a quibble, and I'll mention only partly to stir the pot: This "middle class" business, and the "saving" of it. (My adolescent dabblings with Marx's paradigm - not "Marxism" per se - have come 'round again.) I'm taking the liberty of conflating Jon's & Walter's posts, since they are to me of an harmonious piece.

Walter:
"Into this bad mood, the necromancers of the American right conjure a Total Explanation: liberalism is to blame. It makes you share with people who are not like you. It tells you that you're no better than the street thugs jostling you in line."

Marc Maron And The Great Steven Wright - WTF!

WTF with Marc Maron

I listen to his podcasts religiously, and I think this is the third WTF that I've linked to here. I found Marc's interview with Steven Wright interesting, and particularly heartwarming in that trademark Maron fashion. Bonus: Wright comes in at the end and turns the tables, so we get to hear a rapid-fire rundown of Marc's career as Steven grabs the host mike.

Chaos

Rainbow Mandelbrot
Ain't it pretty?

I'm a bit distracted with an economically mandated return to the Phoenix area. My apologies for not writing much recently. I will return - in the meantime, keep dreaming of an #OWS spring. Clap harder, as they say (I joke I joke, I keed I keed.)
