Out in the parking lot, I noted a station wagon with a new bumper sticker identifying its owner as a Proud Member of the Reality-Based Community. Judging from his other bumper stickers, I'd say his “Reality” is Reality TV.
Or maybe he's just out of phase. His new “Proud Member” sticker was pasted over the top of a bumper sticker that's more appropriate now than it was before If You’re Not Outraged, You’re Not Paying Attention.
I've also noticed that my friend who has spent recent years proclaiming Dissent Is the Highest Form of Patriotism has been strangely silent for the last four months. It's all very interesting to see. Others have noticed, too.
