For those of you who can thrive in the herd, though, my best wishes to you. Waving flags and banging drums is not for me.

I prefer to do my berating and hating and baiting from the comfort of my desk, which I intend to make the most of before it's thrown out into the alley by my landlady, along with my pathetic pressed particles of furniture and my sorry ass.

In a Moment of Truth that no one is gonna have a problem with, Jeff Dorchen examines last week's Chicago Dyke March controversy involving flags, stars, rainbows, Israel, Palestine, simplistic diagrams of oppression, buzzwords, punk-asses, Henry Fords, Zionists, anti-Semites - the usual crowd that shows up to defeat itself as predatory capitalism marches onward.
