I have heard of Blood Meridian and read and loved The Crossing. But now I have reached my limit with the New Yorker. The Crossing would make a great series.

This is the wars coming home? Armoured vehicles or maybe even tanks on the streets of Fergusen. And that feeling that there is no new primitive place to take or exploit, maybe? An opening for a war on the poor?

In the years of GWB Harpers (who was the editor?) was emphasising the diminishment of empathy as a political move. Somehow this brought to mind something Chris Hedges said, maybe from his ordination, a liturgy, a question and response.......'where were you when x was strung up?' 'I was not there'.
