The Difference Between Me and Tom Wolfe


Every day he dressed dapperly in silk or linen suits; even just when he was jutting a few ideas on his typewriter. I put on my bunny onesie, Ok, I don’t wear a bunny onesie but I could if I wanted to. His desk was clutter but organized, I have to push aside half eaten tuna fish sandwiches just so I can press the power button on my laptop.

He was a well-celebrated author, probably the most iconic of his era—I have been read by maybe one and a half persons. He could expand or reduce social angst with masterful ease, I am adept in inanities and an occasional dick joke.

He was influential in the “New Journalism” movement emphasizing that  ” Total Immersion” should be as accurate as traditional journalism. I favor click-bait to get people to read posts about the dangers of Neoliberals….see what I did there?

He ran in the highbrow circles of the glitterati—I know people named Rat face Tony. Wolfe was a conservative, I’m a progressive. I can go on and on but there is one commonality we shared, the need to put down ideas, convictions and resolve on ink, in my case digital pixels, to describe the absurdity of the world around us and that PERHAPS there is always a better way for us to coexist…that and horrific grammar.

    Hate to sound like a CONSPIRACY! person, but… hmm…. Melania hummm… is it possible she is being held against her will, that she tried to FLEE and they locked her up because oh-my that would all be “disruptive” to the government for there to be some kind of meltdown (more then the day-to-day usual today) in the whitehouse… just-sayin!

    • bebe says:

      mean people are saying and tweeting Melania had a face reconstruction yet again and that is the reason she is not seen.
      I find that believable actually.

    Tr*mp is the most corrupt President we have ever seen, and he is enriching himself every day by renting hotel rooms to foreign state representatives seeking favor, and by nations showering his business interests with mega loans. He has the nerve to call anybody, especially immigrants, “animals”. Emoluments laws are now meaningless.

    Income inequality is changing how we think, live, and die
    Why society might be more stable if we had more poverty and less inequality.

      HEAVY METAL HAIR!!!!!

      Well, they did a mess of it until the conclussion of the article. More poverty, is not the answer, ask a poor person. “The argument is that democratic societies have got to negotiate these trade-offs and find the right balance between free markets and a progressive taxation system or a safety net that helps to even out the winners and losers” this is not going to level the social strata but will balance out the pshycological aspects of inequality which is what the article proposes.

      • MSolomon2 says:

        all the hand wringing (in murica) disgusts me, look to the Social-Democratic Scandinavian countries, that’s the model (no reinventing the wheel needed). They are the top countries in alllll the studies/polling ever year, always for “best” in all good things. They keep the ravaging beast that is “capitalism” bound and chained to the good of the People and Society better then anyone else, they are the model for a far better nation and society (not perfect of course, but far better then murica).
