The staff subversive

Maybe I shouldn't come out and say it, being that a) who knows if anyone in a position to do anything at the Hillbilly Rag will ever happen upon this blog entry, and b) who cares, period? but:

Lisa McLeod is the closest thing to a subversive element, as far as I can detect, writing for the rag. Earlier this year she managed to publish a column advocating a Department of Peace, which must have been roughly akin to getting the American Legion to book Jane Fonda as a keynote speaker.

Less spectacularly, though, week in and out, her column (consigned to the wretchedly-titled "lifestyles" section) and the sane opinions expressed therein is a lone beacon visible in an ocean of thuggish wingnuttery.
