the way of all flesh

The morning after

“I was born in 1933, the year that F.D.R. was inaugurated. He was President until I was twelve years old. I’ve been a Roosevelt Democrat ever since. I found much that was alarming about being a citizen during the tenures of Richard Nixon and George W. Bush. But, whatever I may have seen as their limitations of character or intellect, neither was anything like as humanly impoverished as Trump is: ignorant of government, of history, of science, of philosophy, of art, incapable of expressing or recognizing subtlety or nuance, destitute of all decency, and wielding a vocabulary of seventy-seven words that is better called Jerkish than English.”
- Philip Roth, Emails on Trump, The New Yorker, January 30, 2017 Issue

'Watch out! Don't take any chances!'

It was the lark, the herald of the morn,
No nightingale.
Night’s candles are burnt out.

a dirty job but somebody's gotta do it

a handful of lust

this is a man's world
