Don’t be so gloomy. After all it’s not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock. So long Holly.
This weekend I caught the famous noir thriller “The Third Man”. What a great movie! I really enjoyed the plot. It had all the usual, post-war amorality, a stunning European dame, Yankee idealism, European cynicism, and the question of what can we say for ourselves, as a race, when The Judgment comes.
