It is said that some people want to make themselves taller by cutting off other people’s heads. Christopher Recouvreur has used this method, but with the help of Paul Levy of Public Citizen, he was able to elevate himself well above the rest of us, taking the power of “free speech” farther than most people would want to — somehow getting the notion that spending all of his time pretending to be a person he doesn’t even know, and running their “satirical diary,” would somehow make him important. Perhaps he thought that when Descartes said that people see farther when they stand on the shoulders of giants, he should take it literally, and tried to climb up on top of the largest personality he could conceive of being able to ride, which turned out to be someone fairly modest in stature, i.e., my husband, Charles Carreon. While he has his gigantic characteristics, I don’t think that anyone besides myself will be able to build a fortune on his back.
What you’ve got to wonder, though, is how Chris thought it was such a wonderful thing to be able to pretend to be Charles Carreon that it would actually be worth suing Charles Carreon to get and keep that right forever, as if Charles were some type of economic perpetuity that would be dispensing benefit for years down the road. Again, maybe for me, but not for you, Chris.
Right about now, is it starting to feel utterly stupid, boring, and pointless to pretend to be Charles Carreon? Do you realize now that you are going to wear Charles Carreon as your albatross forever, and that the stupidity of your neurotic endeavor is going to stain your life with absurdity? Keep pulling, dumbass, you’re getting higher all the time!
