With Apologies To Ahmajinedad
by Quetzalcoatl Sandoval

When Adorno said that poetry was impossible after the Holocaust,
he said nothing about the comedy which has reared its ugly:) head in
America where almost every comedian worth his salt is Jewish.
How could Adorno get it so wrong? Though he was, admittedly,
a great thinker, he had no clue about the spirit of human nature.
After the gas chamber, can there be over-sized shoes, and big red
rubber noses? Obviously, yes. So, indeed, time reduces even the
most concrete statement to dust. The Phoenix rises from its own
ashes. There is candy in a beaten piƱata. The dry creek floods. Now,
we wait impatiently for the Mexican to triumph.
