Short, Shameful Civilization

Alan P. Scott - Rants - Editorials

the three backwards 'r's

We were in Toys'R'Us (shouldn't that be "Toys'R'We"?)... Toys Arrrr Us, over the weekend. Thought we'd get some kind of educational toy for our young friend Rosemary. We went to the aisle prominently labeled "Educational Toys and Games."

Video games.

Hundreds of 'em.

And nothing else.

The future isn't conservative. It isn't liberal. It's commercialized. The revolution may be televised, but it won't get high ratings.

I think I'll just boot up Doom again.
