ps. Yes the first sentence is grotesque.
I'm a little dense. What is the implicit commentary? Are you being funny or serious? Are you suggesting that "freedom" is somewhere in between, at one end or another, elsewhere? I'm guessing this is meant to be ironic in some way, but I don't quite follow. (I live in L.A., after all.) Thanks
fair enough. i hope that one day, i can read a mind-numbingly moronic piece about the freedoms enjoyed by designers in baghdad and the demands of conspicuous consumption on the nightlife of shi'a and sunni party-goers. there was no irony intended. and i was serious as death.
