« Hoping It Might Be So [by Nin Andrews]] | Main | Bernstein's Divertimento (and the maestro sans cigarette) »

December 28, 2023


Woody Allen's book is very good.

Before they were Dead, White Men gave women and non-whites the vote. In a delicious display of gratitude, the non-white, non-male Mayor of Boston has vindicated her dead white sister, Louise Day Hicks, and re-segregated the Hub! History doesn't rhyme, it swears!

p.s. either Mia and Ronan are liars, or Woody is.

In the quote below Ralph Waldo Emerson, 150 years ago, covered the same dilemma that Perez addresses regarding the need for change and the sacrifices it entails. Ultimately, the sacrifices might cost the loss of the entire system as Perez points out.

"On the other side, the conservative party, composed of the most moderate, able, and cultivated part of the population, is timid, and merely defensive of property. It vindicates no right, it aspires to no real good, it brands no crime, it proposes no generous policy, it does not build, nor write, nor cherish the arts, nor foster religion, nor establish schools, nor encourage science, nor emancipate the slave, nor befriend the poor, or the Indian, or the immigrant."

I would wager that the lie is on Mia's side./ Ronan? Maybe just brainwashed?> People believe their own lies and call it "investigative reporting." The major of Boston is a segregationist. I mean the mayor. That figures. We won't turn the corner until the war on whites ends.

There is no braver, more respected reporter than Ronan Farrow, just ask Harvey Weinstein and the sycophant posse that used to protect him. His mother's bad taste in men is no reason to impugn the honesty or integrity of the lovely Mia Farrow.

Mia Farrow must have something special, given the men she landed, but I fear she is acting the part of scorned woman, than whom hell hath no fury greater.
