On the Forgotten Tedium of Airports and Political Regimes

27Jun08

In which The Gay Recluse remembers sitting at the airport.

Just last week we were sitting at the airport. At the time it seemed painfully boring, but now we kind of miss it.

Even though we know that if we went back we’d be painfully bored again.

This is also why George Bush was elected president only twelve years after Ronald Reagan left office.

We have to wake up from the existence of our parents. In this awakening, we have to give an account of the nearness of that existence.

–Walter Benjamin
