Newspeak











What series of nightmarish calamities would need to transpire to instigate rioting on the mean streets of Prairie Village? Food shortages? A complete stock market collapse? An untreatable outbreak of dandelions? Please forgive my outburst. I'm rereading Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four. It's coloring my perception of the G-20 meetings in London and other current events. (I took this photograph of a peaceful London protest in 2008.)

    War is Peace, brother. And Ignorance is Strength.

    You failed to cite the third principle, Comrade Emaw. Freedom is Slavery. Report to your supervisor for Thoughtcrime Reeducation.

    My vote goes to an untreatable outbreak of dandelions regarding riots in PVKS.

    I see a lot of beige and very few dandelions as I look out my window, BGO and Hyper. Perhaps you're right.

    Looking forward to it, DNA.
