Dispatches from the Asylum is an effort to break free from the PC (politically correct) version of reality that is presented to us 24/7 by main stream and social media. Why – because honestly, it’s just a drag and as society becomes more “PC”, it moves further from the truth.
We point out hypocrisy, expose know-it-all’s, and lampoon those who take advantage of others through hypocrisy, lying, or keeping the truth from the average citizen. We try to do so with satire, sarcasm and humor. This is a satirical site, most of the time, anytime. We try not to take ourselves too seriously, having lived long enough to fully appreciate the line from the Overture of the 1963 movie, It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World – “The only thing you are sure of…Is that nothing is sure.”
“It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” from It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World
Dispatches from the Asylum also covers a variety of modern day absurdities, along with the occasional historical piece, dispatches of fiction, music and other topics that interest those residing at the Asylum.
Henry, our Editor-in-Chief, is a Lab mix, 10 months old, who is the day-time ruler of the Asylum and by night, lover of lounging around. Residents/writers at the Asylum enjoy classical and jazz music, movies from the Golden Age of Hollywood, good vodka, European and Russian History, natural healing remedies, cooking, reading, good writing and above all else, dogs.
In the end, we hope that one finds a chuckle here and there, maybe outright laughter from time to time – possibly think about something they’ve never thought of before and investigate issues on their own – be entertained, enchanted, and of course, attain true enlightenment! 😉
Vive la différence!
