"It’s as if we’ve entered the period of the decline of the republic — but without the reliable money that kept the Gracchi brothers fat and happy. And without the cool architecture and classy duds, of course. It’s the fall of civilization, but with everybody sporting wife-beaters in a strip mall. Come to think of it, it’s the fall of something, but maybe not civilization. I know that 'the end is nigh' is a reliable fall-back for everybody who really means, 'things were better when I was a kid,' but do we really have to flirt so closely with stupid and disastrous just to call me out as a false Cassandra?"
