Below is the latest The Pain -- When Will It End?
I remember after a court martial
in M*A*S*H the presiding officer, after dismissing the bullshit case against
Hakeye and B.J. (or was it Trapper?), told Frank Burns, kind of gratuitously,
that if he hadn't been drafted he probably would have been a pastry chef.
Seems like kind of a slap in the face to pastry chefs, who I'm sure are skilled
professionals, but the remark always stuck with me as a really wounding, understated
insult. It's inexplicable that after a decade of indoctrination by M*A*S*H
we as a nation would go ahead and elect someone exactly like old Ferret Face
to the presidency: a vain, incompetent, sniveling, pompous, hypocritical,
bullying little nitwit. We'd be much better off with Henry Blake.
