Quote of the Week: “Condemnatory, Hyper-Religious Posturing”
I don’t generally post a quote of the week but this, from The Rap Sheet yesterday, was so beautifully etched, I wanted to spread it around:
J. Kingston Pierce said it in a very interesting and informative piece called “Confronting Frontal Nudity.” It is, in part, about cover illustrations from mysteries. The piece is here.I guess American Puritanism comes and goes. Thanks to today’s condemnatory, hyper-religious posturing of U.S. conservatives and the dimwitted complacency of everybody else, it seems, the country is enduring another of its prudish periods. Fortunately, those old paperbacks aren’t yet being burned on the White House lawn, and I live with confidence that these priggish times, too, will pass.
