ENTIRELY UNNECESSARY DESPAIR AND RAGE
“Old white people are drowning in despair and rage. Here’s how my father lost his mind — thanks to his cable diet.” By Edwin Lyngar. Maybe you know an enraged old white person in whom this could trigger a catharsis of self-recognition?
Guess what: it was all about the oil, after all. (When we went in the only building we protected — not the museums or anything else — was the Oil Ministry.) I love the interviewee who notes that it would have been a lot cheaper — and destroyed far fewer lives (as in . . . none?) — just to buy the oil than to invade and occupy the country for 10 years.
If you have an hour this weekend, watch. And if you have five minutes:
☞ Love this. Have a great weekend.
