Simplicity Itself

The Kwaku Network, AfroFuturist stream, is going through some tremors with regard to some advanced cultural production. I don't believe I've seen such dense paragraphs since I read the IBM Redbook for the LU 6.2 standard. Some people would venture to call it post-modern drivel, but I've been accused of that and I wouldn't wish such an angry barb at such high minded people no matter how much they deserve it.

I'd give you a dose, but the list is private.

Every once in a while they don't bury the lede in jargon. This is great because it saves precious minutes and several wrinkles in my forehead. A recent one went something like this "Starve the Prison Industrial Complex". See? Simple. I like it. Here's the Old School Version:

Don't Break The Law!

And here's my real world story, just in case y'all think I'm channelling Nancy Reagan.

BTW, sometimes the post-modern boo boo text sounds like nothing so much as Jon Hendricks Boppin' at the Blue Note. The verbal virtuosity is stunning, but it really doesn't mean anything.
