Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

the clowns, the Clowns

August6

Or…

Pain et Cirques

Overheard at Marginal Revolution:

“. . . Uncle Sam is on the verge of paying the City of Los Angeles $30 million to subsidize a ten-year run of Cirque du Soleil.” Unknown, actually

So it’s finally come to pass – America has embarked on the same road down which ancient Rome marched to its ruin: Uncle Sam not only subsidizes bread (by subsidizing wheat production) but now also circuses.

The loan would come from the federal Housing and Urban Development Department under a program that requires that at least one job be created or retained for every thirty five thousand dollars ($35,000) spent. So for thirty million dollars ($30 million), Los Angeles can get what the Republic needs most in our depressing economic situation: 857 Québécois clowns.

…sigh…

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
