Subtext

Economic history often comes in the small print of TV and movie scripts, a passing image, a headline in a fading newspaper. And then it happens that depression, inflation and oil prices becomes the text, explicit and explosive.

It’s up there with the Grapes of Wrath… Let’s all scream:

“I am mad as hell and I am not taking it anymore.”

(Thanks to Funny Bird…)
