I carry no phone
An aspiring Luddite
In a wired world.
Jeff Berry is an early adopter of the Internet and the
Web, a late adopter of Twitter,
and declines to adopt Facebook or Livejournal. (Although he did succumb to the
lure of Google+.) He hates cell-phones.
A Fallen Colossus
19 June 2018
Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
And I shall place the children in cages
And arrest the parents.
Freedom is not for you,
Freedom is for the native-born
(If not the natives),
Those whose parents or grandparents
Were welcomed here.
Against you, the door is barred.
There is no room at the inn,
And if you seek shelter in the stables
Or lay your child in the manger
I shall set the dogs on you.
NB: The first line, of course, is a quote from "The New Colossus" by Emma Lazarus, which is graven at the foot of the Statue of Libery.
