… this guy sounds like he might be able to capture the hearts and minds of Real America for the GOP primary:
This is the city: a mill that grinds down its inhabitants, a nightmare to its builders. It forces you to change your appearance and replace your values; you take on an urban personality, which has no colour or taste to it…. The city forces you to hear the sounds of others whom you are not addressing. You are forced to inhale their very breaths…. Children are worse off than adults. They move from darkness to darkness…. Houses are not homes — they are holes and caves…
Yesterday a young boy was run over in that street, where he was playing. Last year a speeding vehicle hit a little girl crossing the street, tearing her body apart. They gathered up her limbs in her mother’s dress. Another child was kidnapped by professional criminals. After a few days, they released her in front of her home, after they had stolen one of her kidneys! Another boy was put into a cardboard box by the neighbourhood boys in a game, but was run over accidentally by a car.
Part Sarah Palin, part Edward Gorey.
