We do try (not that hard, admittedly) to avoid politics here at Bureaublog, but when things go completely out of control, it’s hard to stay quiet. Today in the Times there was an astounding double-page ad that listed every member of Congress taking money from the NRA and how much they took. Yes, some of the worst, truly despicable monsters were getting millions. But most were not. Most got less than $40,000. A few got practically nothing. Somebody got $1000. Is money so hard to raise that you will sell your soul for $1000? That seems about right for most of the souls in Congress. Maybe even somewhat high. But for amounts like that, our elected officials choose to do the bidding of an unspeakably evil organization that stops even the smallest attempt at gun control sanity. This is disgusting. Truly disgusting. Not as disgusting, of course, as what you’ll find if you click on the photo (from the Times). You’ll go to an op-ed Times piece from October where you’ll see career totals of how much the “top ten” each got from the NRA. Prepare to be sick.
moss bureau blog is the covert gateway to the inner world of Moss Bureau. Behind the scenes, through the looking glass, up the down staircase, over the rainbow, all around the town. Our town. Our Town. We cover the bureau-front, from top to topless, stem to stern, sea to shining see. We open drawers and draw our own conclusions. The designers, the artists, the interns, friends and foes, clients and miscreants, consultants and co-defendants, the Fairs and the unfair, the good fight and the bad lieutenant, lies, truths, massive cover-ups, mitigating circumstances, plausible deniabilities. The undercooked and the overlooked. Wet-work, dry wall, the dog, the pony, the smoke and the mirrors. We look down the barrel, pull the trigger, and face the music. Fearless, feckless, and born to run. Sometimes a cigar really is just a cigar. Think different. It’s later than you think.
