I don’t like doing political comics, imaginary readers, but sometimes I catch myself thinking about the fact that we live in a poorly written dystopian novel. Besides, any excuse to listen to Tom Lehrer is good enough for me.

One of his quotes really resonates with me in these times of obvious greed, bigotry, and almost cartoonish villainy, which I will leave here for you:

“I often feel like a resident of Pompeii who has been asked for some humorous comments on lava.”
