Is Your Facebook Friend a Friendly Fascist?

Here’s a post from a friend of mine on facebook:

“Just played dodgeball and jumped rope with a bunch of 6th graders calling me Mr. Ben. My job is dope.”

That’s all candy-cane and ga-ga enough.He just got his first job in NYC, and thank Christ that he’s happy because it beats the shit out of serving tables—which is how we met a couple years ago when he taught me how to sell over-priced top-shelf tequilas at noon to customers who just couldn’t squeeze by their lunch hour without hitting the sauce.
