I had been immersed in gobbling up facets of the economic trainwreck until i couldn’t take it anymore and literally stumbled onto this interview. It was a small revelation. This econo-angst that’s been building inside of me didn’t have a face and the endless drivel coming from everyone from NPR through MSNBC and every other news outfit (remember, Fox isn’t news) had their “wise ones” crapping out endless soft-toned doublespeak; “fatazz” in the limited lexicon of my sheepshead bay/brighton beach hood in the ’60′s (yes, i’m from BK). It meant “bullshit of the mouth.” I just googled it. It never made it to popular culture. It did, however make it as someone’s myspace name among other things. To those people, maybe i should apologize, but hell, we had it and used it first.
This Kevin Philips Interview was on Bill Moyers’ Journal friday night.Thanks mike for sending me the link. It’s about 18 minutes long, so get your milk, open those twinkies, sit back and relax.
