To die, or in the case of inanimate objects, to cease working

Dear Gid:

You show us the Feral House, but let me please present you with the Feral Bike:

It makes a lovely corpse, but I'm not sure which kind of careless abandon is the greater crime; if it be a crime at all.

You Americans say that the only certainties in life are death and taxes. Oh how we proud Gauls know this! But you might also add a third truth: that sooner or later each one of us will have to decide whether or not to acknowledge the ghost in the wheatfield.

As you can see, even ghosts cast shadows.

Kind regards,

Théophile Prades
Beaupuy, France.

  1. Despite our best attempts, Theo, the machinations of history have not gone feral. Indeed, the abominations who still run about the Obama nation in white hoods are keenly aware of the Dark Shadow that Whitefield casts.

    There are vigorous debates as to whether Rome declined from purity through sin, or if the Empire's collapse was preordained by an internal vice. Sally Hemings probably has a thing or two to say on this topic ...

    ... another turn of the wheel ... another turn of the wheel ... another turn of the wheel ...
