Yesterday I mused at great length about the mental illness that seems to afflict very rich men who, post Citizens United, have determined to buy political and judicial seats in order to strip our government of everything that serves its people. Except for the few “people” who are very very rich.
Anyhow, I was walking around outside, buying oatmeal and margarine and getting some photos framed, and on Columbus Avenue between 72nd and 65th Streets the clinical name for this disease came to me. It is…
Post Obscene Wealth Derangement Syndrome.
That was tricky because obviously the disease has to have an acronym that will remind us all of absolutely nothing except the acronym. So the acronym is…POWDS.
