Last Refuge of a Schmuck

I have often thought that if a rational, fascist dictatorship were to exist, then it would choose the American system.
--Noam Chomsky
Oh, really?

James Lileks has a response to that. If you don't want to read about how most of his day was spent yesterday, scroll down to the boldface type that says "We arrive an hour early. . ." and read from there. And if you don't already, read Lileks everyday.

If I may swipe from a quote by Dr. Samuel Johnson: Constantly crying "Fascism!" is the last refuge of a schmuck.
