in search of perspective

Mon Dieu! Our democratically elected leader likes Dijon mustard! Where did I put my pitchfork?....

Oh wait, I almost forgot, it's not 1988 anymore. Seriously, I don't think Dijon mustard has been elitist for a solid decade or so. You can buy it at Safeway.

In fact, here are some helpful guidelines for pundits who are confused about what year it is, how much things cost, and life in general:

Things that are elitist:
  • family compounds
  • Ivy League legacies
  • being a Head of State

Things that are not elitist:
  • anything that is available free of charge and in unlimited quantities at a baseball game

in praise of multiple revenue streams

So, Fox is planning on doing a Deadpool spinoff...?

Maybe it will be directed by Darren Aronofsky and take place entirely in Deadpool's fractured and quickly fading consciousness during the ten seconds it takes for his severed head to hit the bottom of that collapsing nuclear reactor thing.

....I would totally see that movie.
