Don't Ask

A political response is by far the most difficult type of response in the arts, in that it makes its subject the dull roar of government and its constituents who are as bored as any with the idea of their constituency.

That said, "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" was officially reformed hereby marking a future rid of that odd discourse of quiet interrogation and hesitant response. And I respond.

As my friend Nick remarked: "well as long as there's don't ask don't tell then don't ask anything." This was the premise for the blog, "Don't Ask"—in which miscellaneous New Yorker cartoons are paired with said caption—now officially done not asking.

Thank you. Don't ask.
