MAY 31 POSTING, FREUD, HANDKE + USUAL POLITICAL MISERIS

The time of making tactical concession is upon us, playing the humble bush whacker - we haven't seen this act since the first presidential campaign. and becoming realistic in dealing wit "the street". but it's a real shame that the FBI won't get to look in every congress person's fridge! no wonder we have sudden unanimity on the rotten hill. but let's give them a break: Poor chaps, all need to have a little extra for their re-elections. Even my congressman, "Red" Jim, "Bugdud" McDermott spreads pork rinds evenly to everyone in his district.
With kabul breaking up too, the old amurrican saying "if you break it fix it" occurs to me to suggest to the forever praying jimmy carter and the "realist" brzezinski and some reagan folks who were responsible for creating and arming the mujaheddin with stinger missiles and then abandoning them to all our fate might... at least pray... since all this praying in america seems to achieve so much. End of facile derisiveness for the day.
First a few links to the ongoing Handke-[Bozo]nnet-Comedie-Francaise-HeinePrize Yes+No Double controversy, two skandals that are now bouncing off each other among the nonreading idiots in europe, perhaps it will even acquire a third dimension.
The promised
links to various fine memorializations of Freud's birthday 150 years ago have been posted with the other matters that caught my eye. Especially I liked the William Gass piece in the NY Times. Harold Bloom's was in the Wall Street Journal, hear hear! The London Review piece is first rate too.
Here the Handke links:

The National Security Archive announced the publication of a large collection of Henry Kissinger's Memoranda of Conversation (memcons), a detailed and candid record of his diplomatic contacts with world leaders from 1969 to 1977, edited by the Archive's William Burr.

An FBI account of "Bacteriological Warfare in the United States" was published by TheMemoryHole.org.

We're running the planet like a company in liquidation," the former US vice-president Al Gore told an audience at the Hay festival, in an impassioned plea to act on climate change before it is too late. "For some reason we have now convinced ourselves, too many of us, that we don't have to care about the future," he said.
