The New Diaspora

This is the title of the latest post at Jeff Culbreath's wonderful "El Camino Real" blog. His view is depressing but incontrovertibly accurate so far as I can tell. It reminds me of someone's response (Whose? I no longer remember) to the mention of the "culture war". As close to word-for-word as I can recollect it was "Culture war? What culture war? There is no culture war going on. Mind you there was one. That was back in the 60's and early 70's. We lost. What's going on now is a mopping up of isolated pockets of resistance." It was a funny response at the time. And it's still funny. But the humor gets blacker by the day.
