In Things That Exhaust Me

Being told I "don't know how things work"—like the government, or corporate America, or the entertainment industry, or any other lumbering institution corrupt with institutional prejudices, glad-handing nepotism, and ferocious gatekeeping that veritably requires checking probity at the door in exchange for access—when, it fact, I absolutely do know they work, but think it's total bullshit.

Expecting integrity is not naïve. It is merely a refusal to settle for the same old shit.
