An English In Kentucky


















Tuesday March 27th 2012    Tim Candler

        A Virus is described as form that's unable to replicate without a host cell.  In the body of knowledge, a Virus is not considered a "Living Organism."   And this is only because life has a definition that's closely guarded by sentinels of virtue and proper-ness.

       All very well to draw that line between life and non-life, between feeling and un-feeling, between thought and un-thought. And I guess commas and colons and semi-colons have their sentinels too. But tomorrow is Wednesday and at five o'clock I'll be free of mail order retail until Bluebirds flock.
