This blog takes it's name from the setting for O'Neill's The Iceman Cometh -- a lousy gin-mill; a smoked-out, greasy dive where the habitues have all landed, it seems, permanently. Their lives, in each case, are paralyzed by fear and laziness. Like my own.

The Cost of Cruel Ignorance

Overheard this morning --

Bush supporter John, of Indianapolis, being interviewed on the street at the presidential inauguration by DemocracyNow!'s Amy Goodman:

Goodman: So do you give any thought to the soldiers coming home from Iraq in body bags?

John (sounding definitely no more than 25 years old): Absolutely. That's just the price of freedom.


What's he doing in Washington?
