An English In Kentucky


















Friday December 2nd 2011    Tim Candler

       There was a time in the history of our species when men and women unable to fend for themselves were considered vagrant and undeserving by those who ate pork chops for breakfast. During the early part of the industrial revolution it was probably easier to declare poverty illegal and then find forgiveness or affirmation on Sunday through an idea of winnowing chaff from corn.   

       Those early days of the relationship between our species and industrial production were the grind that turned the months of November and December into a desperate lather of adulation which has so redefined the Human experience that I too have been persuaded to Boycott Christmas.
