The Mad Tea Party

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this is the visualization of everything I have written in the last two years. I do not know anything about Mark Bryan, except that he is a kindred spirit, and I wish him well.

I’ve been out in the yard lately to see the lady in the black truck drop off her child with my neighbor. This truck is a Texas Truck—complete with lift kit, 4-wheel-drive, and $500-a-month payments.

What drew my attention to it in the first place was the driver’s determination not to park it on the street—not even for long enough to get out and hand her child to her caretaker. Her driving skills are impressive. One day, she got one wheel on the driveway and one on the sidewalk, and I’d venture that a plumb line dropped from her outermost bumper end would have pointed at the line where curb meets street.

About Me

I love my country, that is why I criticize its absurdities; I love my freedom, that is why I do it publicly.
