Doubleplusungood: A Day in the Park.

Finding this online was somewhat timely, because I have been re-reading George Orwell’s 1984. I originally read it when I was something like sixteen. To the extent that I can recall my reaction to the book at the time, I believe I simply thought, “Cool book, cool story.”

Now, forty plus some years later, having witnessed the ever-increasing size and seemingly unbridled power of the federal government, I find that the book is more than a little bit chilling.
