I have a new mini-essay up at First of the Month: http://www.firstofthemonth.org/why-reason-and-revolution/
The editor added the words within the parenthesis to its title. Probably he thought they provided ideological comfort. I don’t mind.
Here’s the portion he selected as the hook:
A few years ago, a Rolls showed up three blocks from our house. It was the only one I’d seen in Berkeley in 40-years. I kept hoping someone would fire bomb it. The fucker’s license plate was MYDOCRX.
I have no problem with that either.
