Our Lord of the Flies

“The evil spirit lies like a fly at the door of the human heart.”  Talmud

It’s amazingly hard to keep flies away – even in the White House - when you continue to generate so much garbage that attracts them. Take yesterday’s celebration of the 90-day anniversary of President Barack Obama’s signing of the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare:


incoming  ain't no flies on me 

             The Fly has landed

aint no flies on me          What kind of man doesn’t swat a fly away?

A review of William Golding’s allegory, Lord of the Flies, in 30 words or less:

Young boys stranded on bountiful island.

Piggy- intellect; Simon – morality: both killed.

Evil: innate, emerged.

Civilization: destroyed by lack of good leadership, lemming mentality and lack of societal norms.

The end.


Hmmm. I wonder what it all means?
