Transylvania Twist

SEEMS HE WAS TROUBLED BY JUST ONE THING:

HE OPENED HIS COFFIN

AND SHOOK HIS FIST SAYING

“WHATEVER HAPPENED

TO MY TRANSYLVANIA TWIST?”

 

ITS NOW THE MONSTER MASH.

 

AND IT’S A GLOBAL SMASH.

 

(Bobby “Boris” Pickett 1962)

 

 

 

Living in Transylvania, Romania, it is curious to note the distinctions made by Folk between Tyrants and Saviors.  They keep building ” new” churches reminescent of ancient rituals and there are many who look back nostalgically to the Ceausescu era– thinking perhaps that Imperial Good justified impaling as a picaresque practice.  Being physically distant from America today leaves many questions empirically unanswered on topics of public opinion and behavior in a similar vein.

Who would compare American twenty-first century politics to policy here at “the end of the known world”?
