Love in the Ruins Son of Clown Ops Usually, we like to spread out the authors noted here but Mister Jinxy has been on a writing roll. This post continues his Tunis trip adventures. Excellent illustrations. Cube’s note: this piece wiped me out. An excerpt with the tour guide: “The Carthaginian had multiple wives. This is called …. polygamy.” He had to search for the precise word as English was not his native language. “In Tunisia today all men have only one wife. This is called …. monotony.” A DC Visitor Writes … Cherry Dilemma Our writer came to DC from Lansing, Michigan to see a concert at the Black Cat.

The Mall was quite an experience for me, or perhaps that was just the warm weather. Either way, the combination of just seeing people and movement and fun in the middle of the Mall just gave me the feeling that if people can fly kites, then maybe the world isn’t going quite as far downhill as I sometimes think after all. I think that’s my idea of peace: people idling around in warm weather flying kites and kicking balls and playing tag. Such a surge of joy like that is pretty rare for me, and honestly it was the best thing ever.
