The Sad Fate of Marvin "Popcorn" Sutton

The noted author of “Me and My Likker", Marvin "Popcorn" Sutton, is now suffering at the hands of his harshest critics in the Bush/Obama Administrations.

Hardly change to believe in, particularly from the Sutton perspective. I fear further crack downs by the literary critics once the new folks in Washington re-establish the Fairness Doctrine, enabling the prosecution of such as Popcorn for not including Carrie Nation's side of the story in his book.

Art has suffered a blow right along with Literature, as all Popcorn was doing was exploring the aesthetic ramifications of interactive performance art involving copper tubing and old radiators internally bathed in a thermally enhanced maize-derived sucrose solution, something any red-blooded American teenager might be wont to do.

Popcorn has a PR problem. He should have framed his activities in terms of ethanol, sustainability and fighting global warming. He could have gotten the Feds to subsidize his operation, and still diverted enough for personal consumption.

Good point, but perhaps Popcorn is one of those throwbacks to a better era when manufacturers had less success in whining for taxpayer dollars.
