    Proud Slut...Fear is the Mind Killer

    •  It's my wife's fault... (0+ / 0-)

      I write a liberal column for the weekly newspaper in a conservative rural Iowa town of 800. This was a response to the lady who does a conservative column and ranted about Des Moines being an Agenda 21 city and how everybody was going to be herded into assigned living spaces any time now.

      We like each other well enough as people. I took her picture for a human-interest story and she sends her grandchildren to my wife for piano lessons. I think the editor is hoping that our flame wars will stimulate circulation.

      Anyway - I showed this piece to my beloved who promptly blanched and declared it unfit for local consumption. Obediently, I retreated to my lair and toned it way down... with the understanding that I could preach to the choir on DK.

      p.s. I've always loved that idea about fear from Frank Herbert's Dune series. Thank you back.
