Fabriquè en Babylon: Evil (Fifteen Years On)

“Oh my God, Emily…you are such a liar!”

This was the opening sequence of a night no one in The Smith household had foreseen coming, but things have now descended to the point where her father had nearly called me up and asked if I was married yet. Precluding him from the Facebook crowd he doubtless was too pious to descend and mingle..................   read more

Not everyone foresaw just how thoroughly successful the first year of ModState would end up being on any given metric, let alone that it would increase its launch day traffic by over 17,000% and spend a mere $433.00 on social media marketing on the year.

SNO’LA! Canal Street (downtown New Orleans), Christmas 2012

As the New Year is preparing to force us all to live within the confines of 2017 for a whole year (selfish!), ModState LLC has continued to develop behind closed doors. In addition to growing beyond the recently-founded board of directors in terms of MANpower1, we’re gearing up to expand our reach as an online magazine in 20172.

SPECIAL: POTUS Debate #3 Judge’s Ballot

Don't let it fool you: this bobblehead comes complete with "Mom Teresa Lifelike Anger Pack"...and yes, we're kidding. The "Anger Pack" costs extra!
Don’t let it fool you: this bobblehead comes complete with “Mom Teresa Lifelike Anger Pack”…and yes, we’re kidding. The “Anger Pack” costs extra!

For what feels like the better part of an aeon, a near equally-endless array of the vile punditry and our hapless American citizenry have watched a 2016 POTUS election cycle that would have Saint “Mom” Theresa swearing in rage. Were it a human pregnancy, Senator Rubio would be tempted to terminate it himself at the hands of a coat hanger from the dregs of the Flint River.
