Origins of Wednesday xxiv: Chute

    I think it will be a long time
    before such a portrait doesn't
    recall Jake Gyllenhaal in wait
    for his bronc in Brokeback. We
    glimpse the sympathetic figure
    and then, lacking the spurs of
    cinema to drive us on, observe
    the chopped index finger, that
    sleeveless forearm ready for a
    wrapping of the reins. Long-as-
    similated prices of an unusual
    kind of glory seem extreme for
    so little of it, and we commis-
    erate reflexively.

    Why, our bachelor uncles would
    ask. Why not learn without pit-
    y, except for one's ignorance?
