I adore political parties. They are the only place left to us where people don’t talk politics.”

~Lord Goring, Act 1, Scene 1 of An Ideal Husband, 1895

It’s been a hell of an 11 or so days here in the States. If any of our readers have been affected by the Shutdown via furloughs, our sincere sympathies and hopes that all this stupidity will come to an end soon. Too bad Oscar isn’t around to provide commentary on all of this; I could see him acting in a role much like Lewis Black does when he pops up on the Daily Show. “Back in Black” becomes “Wilde Times” or something similar.
