Urban Drunk

I have lived inside the loop for over a decade. I thought I had that urban drunk thing down.
Now that I have lived downtown for a year, I realize I knew nothing.
I still don't think I could do the full #BillPowell

I smoke too much.
I drink too much.

I chase wild women.
Everything my parents told me would lead to ruin.
Guess Willie and Merle knew better than my folks.

On Death

John C. Calhoun is still dead.
Am I supposed to respect his family?

My St. Paul's

Funny, it's secular (for now)

compare to 

Lot fewer Wernher von Braun projectiles nowadays.

As If

I began my political responsibility as an ultra-conservative. I wanted the Kaiser to come back; and now I am a revolutionary. I really mean that. If I live to be a hundred I shall maybe be an anarchist, for an anarchist wants to do without all government.

And the canard goes, "people get more conservative as they get older."

I'm with Martin Niemöller.

Back in the day operatives had to board enemy submarines at sea to get code books.
They rebuilt partially burned mechanical encryption devices.
Now they are just captured from our clients.
