DON ANTONIO MORENO SPEAKS FOR US ALL:
Resuscitating Chivalry (NY Times, 7/30/13)
When married politicians are sexting and some college kids are less interested in courtship, it's easy to believe that chivalry is dead. Even pop star Miley Cyrus has proclaimed it so.A 2010 Harris poll found that 80 percent of Americans think that women are treated with less chivalry today than in the past. Is it time for the once-romantic and noble concept to peter out, or should it evolve to be more inclusive for our liberated and cynical age?
Ah, sir, may God forgive you for the damage you've done to the whole rest of the world, in trying to cure the wittiest lunatic ever seen! Don't you see, my dear sir, that whatever utility there might be in curing him, it could never match the pleasure he gives with his madness?
