A little speck of common sense in a mad world
The Telegraph has kindly printed my rather insightful input on a very sad story about America (you will have to scroll down, I'm afraid). It seems that an American woman mistook the sound of rising dough for a gunshot, and spent several hours with her hands on the back of her head, "holding her brains in". But of course she was quite uninjured.
Objective, factual reporting of this kind of thing is unknown in America. We may assume that when the story was reported there, it was sensationalized all out of recognition, and inspired widespread fear of dough. That is how they control their public. But can we not help? It is the decent thing to do. And so I ask you all, each and every one of you, to tell one American that dough, is not dangerous, or frightening, and that it cannot hurt them. Reassure them. Calm their fears. You will have done your good deed for the day.
This is an American. Perhaps the very greatest of them all. They desperately need our help.

One way to measure societal decline is by the stridency of their criticism of their imperial masters. Decayed powers are the most vociferous, of course. At the nether end, we find France, and Britain, closely followed by ungrateful colonies like India and the formerly splendid, yet still savage Middle East.
Ivan: No, I quite agree with the NBA! I only wish they would not use such filthy language.
dessargugues, if they are doing so "maahghty faahhn", as they in those funny little cowboy towns like Boston, then why do they all live in fear, of having their brains shot out, by dough?
Thank you for your advice, Pierre! I have added a portrait of Mr. Nugent.
