[191] Kathy Griffin

Kathy Griffin has gained more fame in her recent “15 minutes” than in her decades of effort to cut it as a successful comedian.

No need to comment on her action. It is hard to add to what has already been said. What is of particular concern to me is that even Griffin—one who does not strike me as among the most rational of citizens–thought her action would “fly.”

I seriously doubt that even five years ago any person of remotely sound mind would have considered pulling such a caper. Not now.

And the reason is context. We are living in a context of hate, and yes, even murder, as Griffin’s action indicates.

Griffin will be gone. Probably rather soon. The context, however, shows no sign of moving out. DC
