With the stock markets taking a battering on a global scale and the politicians appearing to plummet to new levels of incompetence and buffoonery, we here at the Institute beseech you to stay in front of your screens. Don’t leap off buildings; if for no other reason than a kind thought for the person who has to clean up down there. No, stay glued to your monitor because we’re about to do to an artist what ought to be done to many politicians. As Columbo might express it: “Moider da bum.” However, we won’t just put an end to his end, as it were, we intend mutilating his reputation as well.
If your name was Frederik Hendrik Kaemmerer, I’d tell you to run like blazes – but in all probability it’s not; which is convenient because that’s whose reputation is going up in smoke today.
