[Marxism] MaverickThoughts

If the present Russian Spy thing had occurred a half century ago, mainline media in this country would be generating fear and hysteria on the scale of a Northern Arizona forest fire.  Now, of course, with the "establishment" in both countries bent on mutually productive detente, it's being treated, at least by the media, as an ineffectual joke.  On the other hand, if these people were Muslims, we'd be subjected to days and weeks of dire "ooing and ahing" by the Fourth Estate and yet another repressive "terror control" law initiated and implemented in the name of our security.

I've never been a great fan of Al Gore [I really don't  like most politicians] but I've seen him as a reasonably "straight shooter," maybe even as prosaic a character as I.  So, with all due respect to the tabloid press, I'm quite skeptical about this business of his inappropriately touching a lady.  From both Native and Western perspectives, I'd see it all, even if it had actually happened, as his business and not that of the media.  But, of course, I and many others grew up in a "simpler time" with our concerns, then and hopefully now,  directed to more substantive challenges.  Don't mean to sound gross but, in this galloping atmosphere of "political correctness," it probably won't be long before those of us who cuddle our literal cats run the risk of -- well, allegations of something truly awful.  [I hasten to add that my Sky is spayed.]

Yours, Hunter
