That’s More Like It!

September 17, 2015

From USA Today (via Daily Kos):

The White House has invited Ahmed to Astronomy Night at the White House on Oct. 19, which brings students together with government scientists and NASA astronauts. “It will be an opportunity to talk about science and our solar system and the universe,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Wednesday. “We are hopeful that Ahmed will be right at home here.”

“…will be right at home here”!  Need I say more?

(Can’t stop thinking though, so I want to add that the arch image “home” is a KEY to the psychopathology of American democracy, indeed of the continent since “1492”.  It shows up again and again and again in the folklore, literature, and collective “dreams” of the peoples of North America.  Eventually I’ll offer a page of thoughts on it.)
