i distrust -- indeed dislike -- people that are too stupid to be miserable. i do believe, in some way, that chirpy agreeable types are going to be responsible for the end of civilization -- the obsequious shits.

I spend too much time with late adolescents to buy the sad=smart equation. In any case, if we operate from the premise that existence is a crushing burden, does that not suggest that our charge is to mitigate this burden by eating well and enjoying it? I would, however, enjoy reading books called The Burden of Cooking, or The Burden of Sex.

this is the 3rd time i've tried to post this or something like it.

i am not talking about the self absorbed sadness of adolescence that stems from one's parents having too much money and the perpetrator having too much time on his hands.

rather, i am considering the misery that arises from a a correct apprehension of the horrors without, indeed even, or perhaps especially, those those engendered by the banal as is the case with our ms powell. primo levi comes to mind. ms powell will certainly find out soon enough, it is not satan who is emblematic of the moral decay from within the heart of our society, it is the gal who goes out for satan's ciggies.

as for me, it is perhaps my long association with jews (and i suppose jewish thinkers esp.) that gives rise to my suspicions and paranoia. all i know is: you can rarely over-estimate how bad things are. they're usually worse.

cheers!

speaking of the burden of cooking -- rent this if you haven't seen it already.

LaD: "it is perhaps my long association with jews (and i suppose jewish thinkers esp.) that gives rise to my suspicions... all i know is: you can rarely over-estimate how bad things are. they're usually worse."

This Jew has been trying to convince the Fesser of something like this for over a decade.

A college poetry prof had over his desk a quote by Michael Frayn: "It's not the despair, I can handle the despair. It's the hope..."

the goyim, ach. what can you expect from a race that only learned like 2 minutes ago that maybe you should serve a sandwich or something at a wedding (lest the smaller and swarthier of us pass out).
