Holy cannole! People in this city look mentally retarded!

May 4, 2012 § Leave a comment

Like Nagai Kafu at my age, I don’t get out much these days; and I have developed a rather good technique of averting my gaze when I do; but sometimes I do take a look, through omission, out of absent mindedness.

It happened today and — I was struck by a powerful realization:  the people in this city — look mentally retarded!

Not severely.  Mildly enough that on a sunny day, with a pleasant breeze carrying the smell of blooming oranges, or very fine salty sea-spray, you don’t notice.  But when you look closer, it is obvious:  they are retarded.

This explains everything:  the stores, the service, the economy, the government. The crisis, the permanent economic underdevelopment.  Everything.
