This is Reality?

Overheard in a Bar

“I don’t do reality. I’m just not that into it,” a 60 something barfly sitting next to Zola System reader Tomas Garcia in New Orleans bar.

An announcer cries after Tiger Woods faux press conference. Washington tires to force more health care reform legislation down our throats. The world mourns the death of a Hamas terrorist. Pole dancing might become a new Olympic sport. The pilot who tried to take out the IRS office in Austin is called a hero.

Can this be an acid flashback or did that old drunk have a point?  I see all these things on TV, online, in the papers, wherever and I think of Rev. Jim Ignatowski’s quote from an episode of Taxi: ‘I gave up drugs for a $1.93?  I’m going back to drugs.’
