In less “pressing” news, PBS is on the budgetary chopping block. No more subversive Big Bird, no more Cassandra-shrill Nature/Nova predictions of planetary catastrophe, no more analytical News Hour, no more Masterpiece Theater, no more Ken Burns.
Let’s sing, all together now, “Don’t Take Me Out to the Ballpark.”
And how much will we save by eliminating PBS? $1.50 per taxpayer. Pennywise, for sure!
Meanwhile, well-compensated Secret Service agents guard Trump’s fine-lacquered sons as they open a “world class golfing resort” this weekend in Dubai.

The tangerine-tinted one,
Gesticulating upon the stage
Whipping up whoppers

You gonna end up like Al Capone.
Let be be finale of seem
The only emperor is the Emperor of Tangerine.
I had a professor, Dr. Ashley Brown, who knew Ezra Pound, who knew Wallace Stevens, and Dr. Brown once told me I was no Wallace Stevens.
