The Big Disconnect

The truth, the whole truth, nothing else. No frilly accusations, no bloated hyperbole, no toxic waste. No plea bargains or half-baked beliefs. No boy scouts sitting around a campfire harmonizing with erections. No memories, the biggest non-truth of all. Just what’s right under your nose. Which isn’t what’s under my nose, or anyone else’s. Which tells you a lot about truth.

Truth is a wordless phenomenon. A currency for deception. The stepdaughter of reality, which is the closest truth and reality come to being related.

Once all this sinks in you stop watching the news.

Once this sinks in you disconnect your computer.
