Of course, both my real and nominal depression upon the mere mention of my impending 50th birthday are greatly, I would say, sufficiently dramatized.
THE LATEST SENSATION: WEEKS IN THE MAKING!
Indeed, Drama is how we slow things down, to give us time to think.
OK, one of the ways. Nothing new here.
Read Dickens, if you like, for all it matters.
It's what we mean by "Culture"
And its efficacy, whatever you've got in mind....
But my hesitation lies elsewhere.
I have no answer to those other, earlier questions.
How could it ever have been otherwise?
