A sort of life

The rules of digital engagement

WASHINGTON — I’ve been doing a lot of thinking recently and I have a couple of questions that have not found answers.

  • What would John F. Kennedy say about Judge Judith Sheindlin?
  • Would JFK be amused?
  • Would he be profoundly disturbed at the so-called “human wreckage” that feed, that feast on the show?
  • Would he consider this a perversion of the justice system? A perversion of the illusion of justice?

“The rules of digital engagement” is from Volume One: Frank’s Wild Years (1983–2009). Written between 2003 and 2009, Volume One was this author’s attempt to find meaning from life as a young twenty-something. While this endeavor would ultimately fail, what remains is a comical tale of loneliness and debauchery.
