Recently watched Don Letts' excellent The Story of Skinhead (for the BBC, Channel 4). Although America hasn't had any multicultural youth movement focusing on music and fashion taken over by the racist far-right recently, it's not hard to see the frightening parallels of how ideas can spread and progress can be erased, especially when they pan across National Front-inspired graffiti reading "Britain First" (sound familiar?).

Out of curiosity over how smaller city newspapers have been covering this administration, I've been browsing what my commie, leftist-elite indoctrinated brain would consider to be more conservative, USA-town-this-is-what-people-think-is-a-normal-city newspapers. Des Moines Register, Kansas City Star, the Orlando Sentinal, etc. It's interesting to me what coverage of the White Hosue there is, while less sensational, still isn't favorable.
More interesting though is that smaller city newspapers have almost no national news reporting on their front page. We take for granted how less connected people are to the country as a whole in those small markers.

Ugh. These sorts of laments are the worst, as if it's the city's fault you're having less fun than you did in your 20s.
