In the 1904 Olympics in St. Louis, Missouri, “savages” were shipped from around the world to compete in the games — to show white men’s superiority. They were essentially kidnapped, from South America, Africa, and some Native Americans for good measure. They were pitted against each other for two days before the real games began, a bigoted opening act to demonstrate, indisputably, their lesser status.

MODERN LIVING IS A SERIES OF FLOUNDERING STRUGGLES AGAINST IMPOSSIBLY STRONG CURRENTS, SUBMERGING OUR BETTER NATURES BENEATH FRENZIED WAVES OF OPPRESSION AND DISILLUSIONMENT. EVEN WHEN WE MANAGE, SO INFREQUENTLY, TO STAY AFLOAT, THE CLAMOR OF FOOLISH VOICES, THE TUMULTUOUS HOWLS OF THE WEAK, AND THE MONOTONOUS DRONE OF THE POWERS THAT BE ARE ALL BOUND UP TOGETHER IN A UNIFIED, UNCEASING TONE THAT BEATS UPON THE EARDRUMS EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY, EVEN IN SLUMBER.
AND THAT’S WHY I DRINK JULIUS KESSLER’S FINE AMERICAN WHISKEY. IT’S “SMOOTH AS SILK” AND TASTES GREAT BEFORE OR AFTER NOON!
DO BE DO BE DOOOOO.
