    Tonight, I watched an episode of "The Twilight Zone" that first aired in season 1, March, 1960, titled as above. I remember it vividly. It could have been Maple Street in Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, Chicago, NYC, or Louisville. Anywhere where people allow themselves to be captured by the insidious accusations from which this episode grew. Pogo said it best, not too many years after 1960: "We have met the enemy, and he is us."

    Put that in your social conscience of P.C. speech and incurable re-imagination. There is no new imagination under the sun. But every generation thinks they have cornered the market. No, you haven't. We Boomers, didn't, nor did the Greatest Generation before us. And certainly not Gen-X, Y, or Z, Millennials, or anyone else. Try, sometime, to do and say something new. All the wokeness, all the re-imagine, and all the poundmetoo will never get us there.
