W. Kandinsky: "There are no 'musts' in art." T.S. Eliot: "There is no freedom in art." Dostoievski character, after the ancient Middle East epigram: "Everything is permitted." (R-rated weblog. Since one has been advised there is no Literature anymore, or even literature, only writing, one proceeds on the premise that this weblog qualifies as not-meaningless, since it is, or appears to be, a form of "writing."

Touching Trump, the worst aspect of the heavy media coverage he has received due to his circus-performer remarks is that a grotesquely unqualified and dangerous candidate, one one can't help but suspect is a "plant" put into the race by the Clinton machine, is that a candidate with no political experience, not to say a freak, has been normalized. Journalists now discuss him as a bona fide candidate worthy of reflective analysis, a politician who deserves to be taken seriously. Witnessing coverage of this nature is shocking, surreal, sad.

Agreed. He is as shocking as an electric knifefish ('eel"). From NatGeoWild "For the electric eel, getting a meal is all about shock value."
