Fart 1 A very long time ago, taking a one-year leave of absence from college, I found myself living with my slightly younger sister (“Bunky” from here on) in her very first house, which she shared with two other single mothers. (Happily, there was a fourth bedroom for me to inhabit… which I shared with Rosie, my sister’s Great Dane-Rottweiler… Read More »INVITATION TO ARTIVISM: This time it’s PERSONAL…
Let me tell you about fucking fascism… friend. For a long time in my country it was considered very bad form indeed to drop the “F-bomb” in discussions of our nation’s politics. “Fascism” was bloody serious business, and we were never to make such comparisons lightly.
