Bedlam By The Lake

Bedlam was the first insane asylum, back in medieval England. Which wasn't quite as Merry as the brochures make it out to be...

There were no psychiatrists, no psycho-tropic drugs, no concept of compassionate care for the inflicted, not even a padded cell. Of course, everybody was scared shitless of a vengeful God and the seemingly arbitrary punishments of the Church and State, but even with all that "law and order" hanging over them there were still lunatics and the criminally insane roaming about.

They didn't really know what to do with "them", so they just locked 'em up. Theoretically safer for "them", definitely safer for society as a whole. God alone knows what went on in the bowels of Bedlam.

But, you know what they say, "out of sight, out of mind."

So, what I'm thinking is, we get some big padlocks and lock all the doors of Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena while they are all inside.

We can worry about compassionate care and possible treatment later.

What's going on in the deep recesses of the Republican convention is as appalling as anything that went on in Bedlam. In fact, the incestuous reactionary racist circle jerk that surrounds Der Trump would probably make your garden variety medieval lunatic retch.

PS Ya ever notice Melania's eyes? They're dead. Like a doll's eyes. Or a shark's.

Oh, by the way, I plagiarized that...sort of...

PPS Scott Baio and Antonio Sabato Jr.? Oooooh, they pullin' out the big heaters now! Where the hell is Ted Nugent?!
