Happy MOTHER Day, CSR-Style

      A Holiday Missive to “MOTHER”

    Given that the average male Yale graduate’s (we’ve talked to ’em… they’re a sad bunch)  day is given over to dealing with feelings of guilt and inadequacy so deeply ingrained they couldn’t be excavated by a team of oil drillers not to mention an army of $300 per session therapists whose stifling of expulsions of shocked repulsion or helpless laughter is strenuous enough to rupture a spleen, it should come as no surprise that one of the sources of lifelong neuroses has been surreptitiously been made to be the subject of obedient celebration by the nefarious mercenaries of that sovereign conglomeration of purveyors of male emasculation (second only to Zales in the latest BFI poll), Hallmark. So, without any sympathy to those weaklings who lie prostrate before the alter of Labor Pains as a Force of Socio-Economic Blackmail Greater Than Atomic Weaponry (a theory believed to have originated in the works of Enrico Fermi), here is our recognition of your plight and our complete indifference to it.  For those who take offense to such proto-patriarchal sentiments, just keep in mind: “We all go a little mad sometimes.”


About chandlerswainreviews

I've been a puppet, a pirate, a pauper, a poet, a pawn and a king, not necessarily in that order. My first major movie memory was being at the drive-in at about 1 1/2 yrs. old seeing "Sayonara" so I suppose an interest in film was inevitable. (For those scoring at home- good for you- I wasn't driving that evening, so no need to alert authorities.)Writer, critic and confessed spoiler of women, as I have a tendency to forget to put them back in the refrigerator. My apologies.
