Musings On A Cartoon

Calvin and Hobbes

I’d two thoughts when Dave the genius mechanic forwarded me this cartoon.  (Hi, Dave!  Hope Dallas is treating you well?)

  1.  I remembered junior high, wherein a couple-times-a-year, some fool would either pull the fire alarm or call in a bomb threat.  This was 1963-66.  There was a perfunctory evac while the school was checked, and we went back to class, in an orderly fashion.

I imagine the kid who was trying to avoid taking a test had to anyway.  This was not terrorism.

2.  The Ray Bradbury book (and the film) Fahrenheit 451.  Once a futuristic tale of government sponsored book-burning, foiled by people who made it their life’s work and duty to memorize the banned books in toto, to pass on to future generations.

Now, yet again, the sedan of censorship is driving over the works of people like Mark Twain, using the wheel of political correctness.  And people are wanting to excise symbols of the Confederacy, as though not being reminded of slavery and federal government takeover of State power will make it not have existed.

No gasoline needed.

Yet.

  1. Are you sure the gas isn’t needed yet? I can think of a few Progressives whose feet need to be held to the fire, so to speak.

    Bullets needed probably sooner than later. Then will come the gasoline. I vote we burn DC to the ground and start over.
