Frankly, it’s the loss of the middle class that has really wacked this country out.
Everyone wants to be a star. Or, they’re addicted to crack. Or both.
Okay, perhaps living in Los Angeles, I have a terrible view of the social order.
But where will we be if we aren’t all moving toward the middle? Oddly, and I hate middlebrow stuff, but oddly, moving toward the middle is very stabilizing for any culture. And the more people are moving toward the middle, the more stable things get.
I would like to see us, as a nation, move in this direction.
I need to visit Missouri or somewhere else like that. Maybe it happens there. It isn’t happening here.
On another note---There were only ten people in the audience tonight for
The Fat of the Land. It went over so well. The actors were relaxed and had such a good time. The ten people were laughing out loud. And so, one must be grateful. "Isn't it amazing how everything works out?"
