“Of A Sudden We’ve Slipped Into Some Golden Age of Horror”

When last we saw Calvin he was happy as a lark,

It seems that there are now a few people on the team that’s worked diligently to bury reality for years who have recently had the wool removed from their eyes. All of a sudden they’ve found that reality is blocking their path. People such as Glenn Greenwald:
