LIONEL PODCAST: The Savage Murder And Dismemberment of Leiby Kletzky, An Innocent Child

On Wednesday a subhuman piece of walking slime made a full written confession to the cops detailing how he smothered a Brooklyn Orthodox Jewish boy, Leiby Kletzky, 8, with a towel and then dismembered him. It gets worse, if that’s even possible. Police found some of the boy’s dismembered remains including the child’s feet in Ziploc bags in the killer’s refrigerator; other body parts were deposited in dumpsters. And to think, we share DNA with this animal. Why? Please, someone tell me why.

I normally shy away from discussions about horrible stories like this because I have such a fear that I might be mistaken for the schmaltzy no shite commentaries from the paragons of the obvious who, miraculously, are against the murder and dismemberment of innocent children. And yet, despite the horrors of this event, there remain many fascinating questions that I explore herein. Never approximating schmaltzy, I assure you.

LIONEL PODCAST: The Psychology Of Our Collective Insanity

This might be one of my most important podcasts ever. Or maybe not. It details our collective insanity. We are nothing more than a collection of misfits and ambulatory schizoid lunatics. If you want to know why we do anything, look at us from a psychological reference point. There’s virtually nothing that we do that’s not grounded in some base, atavistic behavior. Take dancing. Please. Cicero said no sane man will dance. And that’s true. Something so seemingly innocent, tribal and mired in history is frankly one of the most obvious symptoms of our being unhinged. Look at these three pathetic souls in a Romanian psych ward. It’s a mirror.

LIONEL AUDIO: The Post 9/11 Mélange

The man pictured infra holds no relevance whatsoever to today’s audio blog. It’s an inapposite, even desultory inclusion for no other reason than his name cracks me up. Say it as written. I don’t know why, it just cracks me up ever since I first read of Mr. New Land in high school. The cadence, the timing. Dunno.

I’m particularly proud of today’s masterpiece. As you may have heard, Saturday was the ninth anniversary of 9/11 and, as you can imagine, I have a few thoughts on the subject. What this year’s commemoration will denote is the absolutely despicable dereliction of duty of the mainstream media in paying any attention to that reverend lunatic Terry Jones. There must be something about that name because his Monty Python counterpart likewise shares insanity.

Just listen for yourself. That’s the idea of audio, you know. Listen.
