Christian Surrealism

Filed under: General — m759 @ 5:26 PM

Some context for David Brooks’s
New York Times column today,
Christian Realism“–

The death of Oral Roberts is
reported on the online front page
just below an ad picturing
a heavenly travel destination–

NY Times front page, 4:17 PM ET Dec. 15, 2009: Death of Oral Roberts reported below an ad picturing a heavenly travel destination

The part most interesting to me
in the Times‘s surrealistic tableau
is the time, 4:17 PM.

Interpreting this in a surreal manner
as a reference to the date 4/17, we
find an appropriate Wallace Stevens poem.

(See also today’s previous entry, where
3:23 may be similarly interpreted.)
