The 2020 Texas State Fair has been shut down and Big Brother Tex cannot lull us into complacency with his long lines and magic corny dogs.
Our eyes are open. We see the rampant corruption, racism, inequality and greed that has the world burning. The worst global plague in history has us hopelessly barricaded in our homes where the orange man on the TV tells us to drink bleach. Creativity is the fulcrum to hope and it’s also a fabulous distraction.
“I have come to chew bubble gum and kick ass” ….and I’m all out of ass.
