I understand satire.
I am more of an irony kinda guy. But, satire has it's place.
This just happens to be that place.
Bless the New Yorker! And bless the SPI!
You opened up the field (though I don't think you meant to).
While this would be totally fucking disgusting at any other time and in any other place, I think it is apropos here!
ps I was always a big fan of Angela Davis and Miriam Makeba (Ms. Stokely Carmichael), so the New Yorker cover kinda turned me on (no offense Barry).
