What is Hollywood, you ask, dear children? A quorum of whores babbling endlessly on about fucking while the bordello is razed for a penny arcade -- Paul Bern

Whenever my hotheaded compadres start bitching about the Putos Gringos or NATO, I offer them another glass of slivovitz, and then I tell them:

It's not Rome.

It's Austria-Hungary.

In other words, a bureaucratic fable of empire rather than an actuality.

and then I say, more gingerly...

When it's gone, you'll be sentimental about it, like everyone else.

Even more than the others.
