I’m a strange combination of bored and angry these days. It’s boring watching Borough Council members and Penn State trustees focus so exclusively on finding new ways to stick their thumbs up their own buttholes, to the exclusion of actually helping the people of the Borough and the people of Penn State understand and address our shared problems.
It’s also infuriating.
I’m thinking about channeling that banger into a serialized, less-shitty-opian fictional account of political and civic life in State College and on Penn State’s campus. Exploring what it might be like to live in a relocalized, decentralized community whose elected and unelected leaders grapple with issues for real, instead of whatever it is they do. Parody reportage of some sort.
Could be fun to create something new.
