|Earl the Squirrel's Rule #32|
What other culture in history could envision, let alone produce, such a lull? Who among us could imagine a similar drought in any other art form? Five decades without an iconic painting, book, film, play or song? Unthinkable.
An entire mode of speech, of which we have but two, currently finds no audience beyond song lovers and sleepy children. The only thing more amazing than this obsolescence is the apathy it generates, even among the overproducers.
