  •  Just like Robert McNamara (8+ / 0-)

    McNamara got in the boat with Charon to take him over to "Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here," and then tried to argue about it, maybe slip Charon some cash. Crowd on the shore went off holding their noses.

    McNamara, decades after, admitted maybe Vietnam was a fucking mess. Like - so we'd sorry for his ass too?

    O'Connor, like many reputed brilliant professionals, is a jerk who should have stayed on Daddy's ranch. Too fucking late, bitch. Fuck you and the elephant you rode in on.

    •  the news (0+ / 0-)

      reminded us independently of Robert McNamara.  Most of them die with their regrets.  If they have a conscience, it eats away at them and they have to confess.  But there are far too few examples of mea culpas given the number of grave, partisan choices.  

      Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity. Horace Mann (and btw, the bike in kayakbiker is a bicycle)
