Vague yet impassioned emoting

Whenever I visit Williamsport for a while, I cannot help but flip to the Sun-Duhzette's letters page. It's a compulsion. Here's a line that's bound to have you spitting blood, courtesy of "Vince Knauff:"

"The Republican agenda goes into some detail on how they will achieve their agenda. And those methods to making their agenda are proven winners. They work."

But more interesting is this gem:

Election is coming quicker than our ability to recapture our destiny. All politicians are blessed with the knowledge that they have allowed us ordinary citizen to keep just enough to keep us from taking to the streets. After all, we're not French. We'll complain, but we have been allowed to taste but not bite into what ever could have been. That's the irony of our citizenship. We have been told that we have it good; therefore we believe.

John T. Kovich


Indeed, I certainly agree that the situation is pretty ironic in light of all the things taking place vis-a-vis the other things. Or not, as the case may be.

Okay okay. I have a teaching assistantship at Kent State starting in the Fall as I work--god willing!--toward a PhD in literary studies. Right about now, I'm home for my brothers' college graduations. So yeah, I'm going to miss cmu commencement, tragically.
