The Penny Arcade had a great comic up today pointing out the irony in the gun control/free speech debate. What I enjoy about these guys is their ability to call bull shit without necessarily taking a particular political side or stance. We’re a country of people who are all too often divided into an “us” or “them” camp, even though there are far more choices and distinctions out there. Our politics, our media, even our education system have gotten caught up in the two sides to everything point of view. It is nice to see some people who don’t mind pointing out that absurdity in public view. And they certainly do it better than I can. My hat is off to you, gentlemen.

I chose the Shorter Whitman because of his work, "Song of Myself" and because of my self-deprecating sense of humor. I am under no illusion that I can write successful essays or poetry, but I have been known to write them anyway.View all of Dan Granot's posts.
