    Aaron Regunberg conducts himself well.

    It’s only natural that the boulder that he pushed uphill

    so effectively

    showed not a little gravitational entropy.

    And worse.

    Peace requires public servants.

    Turbulence requires leadership and example.

    Aaron, your cred is nicely intact.

    You are a virtuous leader.

    Sorry. I’m going to be a little less copacetic

    and a little more real.

    The next mayor of Providence should be more sophisticated.

    Mayor Elorza, this is a criticism comin’

    right at you, if you’re here to listen.

    You lack the connections, the sophistication, and the level

    of progressive big money credibility

    (don’t hold your breath for the Clinton/Obama Dems.)

    to take Providence where it needs to go:

    Straight up during trying times.

    Providence is already the undiscovered Florence of New England.

    But, something is always a little swampy among the Medicis

    and those who are being brought along by them.

    Revitalize the neighborhoods. Give children organization

    and training so that
    they can be educated.

    Organize people, great and good.
    Organize people, clueless and willing to surrender.

    Change the attitude.
    Change the spirit.

    Will you take up that charge?

    This is a good scrap of meat
    for the righteous wolf.

    Here’s the “good” news:

    Saw the latest Michael Moore movie, Fahrenheit 11/9, last night.

    Quirky funny, idiosyncratic in the Moore way, and better than good, for sure.

    Educative in the best playful sense.

    Something for everybody who is willing to watch.

    Here’s the “bad” news.

    Ten people in the Seekonk Showcase at 7:00 on a Friday night.

    Minds are going elsewhere for their info,

    good, bad, or indifferent.

    Movie theaters, unless they are preserved at least for awhile

    as so-called “loss leaders,”

    are broadbased dying. Like record stores. Like book stores.

    Even among the ten who watched (at 7:00,) I wasn’t sensing,

    “Atta boy, Mike.”

    They were taking it in.

    MSNBC is part of the same tv network that gave us Trump in the first place.

    They’re a beehive of activity.

    CBS has gone financial and discount.

    Fox is Trump and Wall Street’s propaganda organ—without apology.

    People are building like crazy. Lending Tree’s rates are nice.

    2007-2008, not only awaits: It’s a dragon that must be fought before it strengthens.

    Scum exploit depression.

    Scum exploit Depression.

    We need better.

    Mike’s doing his job.

    Netflix? HBO? Buy this piece and show it before the Midterms.

    You know:

    There’s somethin’ to this media stuff.

    Quick. I wanna squirrel something’ away.

    Look. Life is hilarious. Believe it.

    We’ll squirrel our way through these awful times.

    Puff out your chest, young squib.

    And fly.




    Butchie: Nicer !

    Mary Ann: More considerate.

    miserable Joe: Friendlier.

    Sheldon has been the real Atticus Finch.

    The Real Deal. He’s the best lawyer in the Senate.

    Take a victory lap, Blood Horse.

    I got questions tomorrow.

    (yo, caillin.)
