(Jul. 27, 2020) — “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to ‘The Pulse of the Nation,’ the place to hear it here first. We’re in Professor Zorkophsky’s rather nice office, here at the university, to talk about his latest psychological mystery thriller, ‘The Ostrich Syndrome.’”

“Excuse me, Roving, but my new book is a psychological survey on the warped minds that believe if they close their eyes and can’t see the evidence, it’s the same as closing their minds* (to reality). And, Roving, you can call me ‘Zork’ as long we’re in my office.”

“Okay, ‘Zork’ it shall be. So I must’ve missed something, because after I read it I sure thought I just read a mystery novel: please explain.”

“No, you got it right, Roving, because the mind is a mystery. Do you know we understand the whole life cycle of the alfalfa plant more than we do the human mind? And do you know that there are discoveries in outer space that blow our minds away? It’s true. Take, for instance, the other side of the moon: it doesn’t look anything like the front or the half that we see.”

“Yes, thanks to the photos by the Russians in 1959. Which reminds me, there’s a space race for Mars, isn’t there?”

“Too true, Roving: us and the Chinese. Reminds one of the space race to the moon between the Russians and us. Now, what do you say I show you some of my latest gadgets before we start to hawk my new book?”

“Sounds like a plan.”

“Yes, but I would like to say that these mentally-deranged BLM; ANTIFA; ISIS; SPLC; Nation of Islam; anti-Semites; anti-Christians; anti-history; anti-Constitutionalists; Dems; your run-of-the-mill uneducated, unread and unwise American-old-enough-to-vote; statue-topplers and all the rest that I failed to mention, are like little children acting like two-year-olds in a PTS: Perpetual Tantrum State. It is disgusting, nauseating and revolting to see the so-called ‘peaceful demonstrators’ have the run of the streets while the police stuff their mouths with donuts, the crème-filled being the most popular.”

“I didn’t know that.”

“Oh, yes. I have a professor friend out in Portland, Oregon who quit his job, bought a class-A RV, gutted it, and redecorated it as a donut counter and parks it a couple of blocks away from the riots. He caters to the police and is making money hand over fist.”

“Good for him.”

“I’ll say. Besides the sweet-filled donuts, the donut holes are a popular item.”

“Oh, I didn’t know that.”

“Yes, since the cops don’t really have anything to do in Portland: I mean, why call 9-1-1, right? So they – the cops – have slingshots and they shoot these donut holes into the rioters who catch them and eat them.”


“The cops figure if the rioters eat enough of them, they’ll all die of hypercholesterolemia.”

“Well, at least they’re planning ahead, something the Portland politicians sure as heck aren’t doing. I mean, what’s the end game?”

“Who? The politicians like Nadler and Pelosi, or the rioters?”


“Well, as far as the politicians go, it’s votes, and for the rioters, heck: even they don’t know except to someday – soon – eat dog and the animals in the zoo.”


“Oh, not by choice, but that’s the logical conclusion. Anyway, I want to show some of my latest gadgets that I know you’ll be interested in seeing.”

“Yes, of course, but, getting back to the mysterious human mind: what about this ostrich connection?”

“Remember how the book starts? A seed is planted and cared for, and that takes patience. Freedom and our Constitution didn’t happen overnight, you know; it took a couple of millennia to make it happen, from Socrates to Thomas Jefferson. And like a seedling sprouting, it needs protection, just as our country needs protection from weevils, locusts and herbivores.”

“You’re comparing the rioters with herbivores?”

“Sure, and why not? You see, a mob is nothing more than a collection of scared animals caught in a maze, and when it gets too confusing, they run around in circles destroying anything, even themselves.”

“What kind of herbivores?”

“Zebra is one; another is bison; and then you have your rat. I think rat. Think rat.”

“Rat? You’re comparing the rioters to rats? ISIS to rats? Democrats to rats?”

“And you heard it here first, just as you say in your introduction. Here, let me show you my Mini Black Hole contraption.”

“Maybe later. So where’s the ostrich fit in?

“As a metaphor on the behavior of idiots.”

“What kind of idiots?”

Our kind of idiots, which are the worst kind. They seem to be allergic to hard work, taking on responsibility, and accepting it is you  — and you alone – who is the captain of your destiny. Choices, Roving; it’s all about choices, which our Constitution provides.”

“So how come the rioters and the Dems don’t get it?”

“Because they think that the word ‘free’ comes without a price, that’s what.”

“Okay, thank you for taking the time to hawk your latest bestselling textbook, Zork. It’s a good read, but I guess the audience that really should read it won’t; do you agree?”

“That’s true, sad to say. I mean, if all you watch is CNN, The View and Morning Joe, of course you’ll find yourself on the streets looting and burning and making a complete fool out of yourself. It’s the old saying come to life: garbage in, garbage out.”

“So true, and with that, on behalf of the crew, I’ll be wishing you all a goodnight: Goodnight.

“Good show. Burger time: my treat.”

[*Closing their minds: so let me see if I understand this: Columbus sailed across the Atlantic and never actually set foot on the North American Continent, yet his statues are spray-painted, beheaded, toppled and he lived 500 years, five centuries, a half of a millennia ago? And it is not until now that he is being disrespected?

So I have to ask myself this question: is there a connection between what Muslims do, such as Palmyra and the Buddhas of Bamyan, and what is going on now, here in the USA? It seems to me that cultural suicide is crazy no matter who is doing it.]
