The World is a Whore*
A friend of mine, who is many times over a published playwright and makes a respectable income from it, suggested that I turn my little PKvermonter talk on Salesman (video above) into a TED talk. I wrote back rather freshly, that I would remain "PKvermonter because I prefer being unknown, unappreciated, and unsubscribed; there's something romantic about casting my pearls in front of passers-by."
I decided this long ago: The world is a whore; and I don't want a social disease.
* This is not a sexist remark, because there are male whores.
