Bless you one and all

“We may have democracy, or we may have wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we cannot have both.”

Having learned little from history, free-market apologists today have nothing but scorn for the 99% of their fellow citizens who have been left ravaged by upper-class gluttony. The war on poverty has devolved into the war on the poor, with a future bleak enough to conjure up Dickens. If Tiny Tim existed today, his anxious father would be working check-out in a Roses store.

Out for a few days

Wishing you all the best. Thanks for holding down the fort.

PS I'm very excited about our new front-pagers. We'll be getting ourselves together (virtually and maybe even in person) over the next couple of weeks to map our plans to divide and conquer our political coverage for the year ahead. Thom Tillis would be proud.
