Angle of Repose Friday Edition

21 April 2017

Angle of Repose Friday

“I wonder if ever again Americans can have that experience of returning to a home place so intimately known, profoundly felt, deeply loved, and absolutely submitted to? It is not quite true that you can't go home again. I have done it, coming back here. But it gets less likely. We have had too many divorces, we have consumed too much transportation, we have lived too shallowly in too many places.” 
-- Wallace Stegner 
"Angle of Repose"

It's "Angle of Repose Friday" on The After Show. Surveys say, that’s the angle in which a granular substance stays in place on a slope. We insist it’s the angle you recline on your Barcalounger while reading Wallace Stegner’s, “Angle of Repose.”

The Energy Department is denying funds for already-approved grants; Arizona Governor Doug Ducey signed a bill to preempt nonexistent gun restrictions by local governments; and, the Wisconsin Supreme Courta wholly-owned subsidiary of Koch Industries, rejected a request from 56 judges to address judicial campaign cash.

For The Last Half, it's the Friday News Dump and Recycling Center, news that's been re-purposed with a purpose.

Karen Handel, the Georgia GOP candidate in the runoff to fill Tom Price’s House seat, is a pioneer in voter suppression; and, after receiving 94% of its funding from taxpayers, the California State Auditor discovers Los Angeles’ largest Charter School chain has raised millions in Dark Money to fight a Union drive.

All that, plus the Connect! Unite! Act! Daily Kos Community Calendar and more, on The After Show with Wink & Justice.

"Just listen to those crazy tunes!"

Do not weep, maiden, for war is kind.
Because your lover threw wild hands toward the sky
And the affrighted steed ran on alone,
Do not weep.
War is kind.

 Hoarse, booming drums of the regiment,
 Little souls who thirst for fight,
 These men were born to drill and die.
 The unexplained glory flies above them,
 Great is the battle-god, great, and his kingdom—
 A field where a thousand corpses lie.

Do not weep, babe, for war is kind.
Because your father tumbled in the yellow trenches,
Raged at his breast, gulped and died,
Do not weep.
War is kind.

 Swift, blazing flag of the regiment,
 Eagle with crest of red and gold,
 These men were born to drill and die.
 Point for them the virtue of slaughter,
 Make plain to them the excellence of killing
 And a field where a thousand corpses lie.

Mother whose heart hung humble as a button
On the bright splendid shroud of your son,
Do not weep.
War is kind.

-- Stephen Crane 
from "War is Kind"
