it’s a public thing

A Google search for “res publica” yields a large number of disappointingly benevolent and useful websites. Did you do know that there is a political party in Estonia that calls itself Res Publica? Neither did I. Did you care? Me either.

Then there’s this tooth-achingly earnest collection of do-gooders. I mean….I totally support everything they stand for, but Jesus, can’t there be a death-metal band named Res Publica? Or some hideous satanic cult? Can’t it be some serial killer’s alias?

But no matter. If I keep blogging, people with eventually come to associate those two little Latin words with the kind of horror, impurity, and chaos in which I take such delight.
