‘Tis the season. In the drugstore right after Halloween for chrissake, they put on Angela Merkel music. Everywhere I go I see Angela Merkel. I’m not making it up. Did you see her on the cover of Time? Woman of the year. Angela in exelcis. For a basically modest person she is taking up a lot of the ether. Is it because she gives boring people hope? That’s not to say she herself is boring. Her presence is a moral in which the resposible are rewarded, the pragmatists who get the job done while you and people like you are saving imaginary worlds.
Angela angelorum. Pah rumpum pum pum.
