I saw dresses on sale at Walmart. They were Walmart kinds of dresses, if you know more about the details than I and think that's funny. Big, tent-like dresses for fat ladies who live in trailer courts in rural areas is the idea I'm trying to get across. Walmart had racks and stacks of these dresses, all done in patterns from Piet Mondrian, the famous Dutch Modernist painter. He was cool, way back when. Now, 60 years later, his work adorns fat ladies in their moo-moos as they waddle toward the bon-bons and t.v. remote control section of Walmart. They very likely don't know of Mondrian, wouldn't care to listen to me tell them about his colour theories and epistemology and so on. They like the look of the pattern and they like the price.
Yesterday, Mondrian; today, Derrida.
In addition to the recent announcement by DC comics that Superman will soon renounce his U.S. citizenship, this mass culture hero's reconnection with his Progressive roots will usher in other remarkable changes.http://thepeoplescube.com/

When D.C. comix is doing ultra gauche, you know it's a matter of time before Walmart starts selling Foucault Halloween masks and everybody there gets the "irony."
Even if they don't really get it.
