Too Stupid for Words

With the end of another year in sight, this is traditionally a time to take stock. Fitting, then, that two news stories of the past week were about matters that defy commentary not because they are complex, but because they are too stupid for words. One, about the Pentagon having spent $22 million on “Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification,” or finding UFO’s, would be funny if not for all the deserving-but-neglected things in life that could be transformed by $22 million or even $2 million or maybe just $2 hundred. The other, about a list of words banned by CDC budget analysts, including “science-based,” would also be gag material if not for the ongoing bowdlerization of government websites and publications by Trump censors. All of this, and so much more during the past year, is just stupid. And that covers it completely.
