Friday, May 19, 2017 – Stella! Hey Stella! A Street Car Named Desire in 37 Words.
They told me to take a streetcar named Desire and then transfer to one called Cemeteries and ride six blocks and get off at Elysian Fields.
Stella! Hey Stella!
I’ve always depended on the kindness of strangers.
The Desire Line Streetcar is named after Desire Street in New Orleans. The Pulitzer Prize winning play by Tennessee Williams is Southern Gothic at its finest. New Orleans. Crazy people.
In the South we are proud of our crazy people. In fact, we like to sit on the front porch with them and have cocktails. Howeveh, many of us do not like to elect crazy people president of the United States. We prefer that governor of a state is plenty politics for crazy people.
Here’s what I’m thinking.
I bet when Trumpet said “I’m going to drain the swamp,” he forgot to check and see how many alligators lived there.”
I doubt Trumpet will repeat Blanche’s line as she is carted off to the looney bin. But he could tweet it at 3:00 AM.
