On top of things, per my usual modus operandi...*

Yes, this is only several weeks late. Actually, almost two months. And most people have moved on from blogging about the, uh, infamous “Life of Julia” slide presentation that the Committee to Reelect Our Fearless Leader threw together to tell us how, uh, important the government, and Our Fearless Leader, is to our lives. Well, here is my observation:

Has anyone else notices that “Julia” is also the name of the heroine of George Orwell's 1984?

The implications has my mind reeling...

And while you
contemplate it, enjoy this haunting song, written by the Eurythmics for the 1984 film, “Nineteen-Eighty-Four,” starring John Hurt and Richard Burton (in what turned out to be his last role.)

* Sarcasm alert! Which the sarcasm should be obvious, since I am clearly NOT on top of things when it comes to posting on this blog. Will try to do so more often!
