I Step Away from the Computer for a Few Minutes…
And Bill Whittle posts his latest magnum opus: STRENGTH.
I have printed out all 30 pages so that I may sit and absorb it as it should be.
Now, Mr. Whittle, if you’d be so kind as to get Silent America published so I can get my Christmas shopping done early this year?
(Edited to add:)
Son. Of. A. Bitch.
I just sat and read the piece. About four pages into it I felt the need to read it out loud.
It demands to be read out loud.
On television. On radio. On street corners.
In auditoriums on college campuses and in high schools.
In Madison Square Garden before a capacity crowd.
In Carnegie Hall.
Before Parliament, by Tony Blair.
Before a joint session of Congress. By the author.
And it needs to be translated into the languages of the Middle East and read over loudspeakers there, instead of the call to prayer.
Bill Whittle goes to eleven.
