Dear Dirty America

From the Joyce

Dear Dirty America comes from one of my very favorite novels. Ulysses. Written by a man you might have heard of. James Joyce. In the famous “Journalism” chapter, one of the headlines reads Dear Dirty Dublin.

I sacrificed one-third of the alliteration effect to apply it to the country in which I reside. America. Land of the free, except for a few statutes and laws and secret mandates, and home of the brave, except for the past few generations who call their carpeted bedrooms and flickering television sets home.

But we’d have to define ‘brave’, and that would seem useless. But Joyce would do it!
