Welcome to The Cahokian...
A thousand years ago Cahokia — across the Mississippi from what is now St. Louis — was one of the biggest cities in the world. Now it's an empty green spot next to the highway. I'm a middle-aged gay man living in New York City, center of the world, future footnote on somebody's future map. Welcome to the new world.

May Day in Union Square I saw a contingent of people carrying signs
with the old, albeit perfectly legitimate, chestnut of a slogan, "Money
for Education, Not for War." I had to look twice though, cause out of
the corner of my eye with my less than stellar vision at first I thought
the signs said "Money for Revolution, not for War."
I was disappointed when I got a closer look. But hey, you never know!
