A History Lesson: Fascism....

An Amalgam: Censorship, the Mailman and MLK...

"It is now common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that'. As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more than a whine. 'I find that offensive'. It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that'. Well so fucking what." -- Stephen Fry

The Pretense to As*hole...

I usually begin one of these mental health exercises with a quote from The Sages. The subject is "pretense", however, and when I'd realized that I could not remember any related quote from my quite prodigious memory, I took to the internet to search one out.

Only to discover most of the quotes recorded on the subject came from second- and third-rate modern actors and actresses begging not to be considered pretentious frauds.

Whereupon, I gave up on the endeavor.
