Kickass kill all the reporters
Kickass, the doorstop dog, says the keeper, as a long retired journalist, has been possessed by what he says is a famous line from Shakespeare; “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the reporters.” It has been pointed out to the keeper, who has a limited exposure to great literature, that the line says “lawyers” and not “reporters,” and was uttered by Dick the Butcher talking to the traitorous Jack Cade in Henry VI.
The keeper insists that the very circumstance he is concerned about was recreated recently in the White House by a female Butcher of the truth as she promoted the “firing” of reporters who dared to write bad things—otherwise known as the truth, about the current version of Jack Cade and his ambitions to become king.
Kickass says the whole world—particularly the keeper, is like a crazed, ego-centric dog chasing its own tail, which it continues to do until it falls dead of exhaustion or somebody pours a bucket of cold water on it. Kickass knows where there is a bucket.
