For they’d none of ’em be missed

Promoted from the diaries by Rosi. Clever use of G&S, and this reminds me a bit of tabbycat31’s diary of things that should just go away. Who’s on your list, today, Blue Jersey?

“As some day it may happen that a victim must be found,

I’ve got a little list – I’ve got a little list

Of society offenders who might well be underground,

And who never would be missed – who never would be missed!”

Ko-Ko in the Mikado by Gilbert and Sullivan

Ah, for a progressive, my list of offenders who never would be missed is exceedingly long. Where to begin? What the heck… why not start with Senator Ron Rice Sr. (D-Essex County)    

–  About 25 years ago in Newark’s City Council he proposed a bill forbidding Newark hospitals from providing AIDS care to non-Newark residents.

–  A steadfast opponent of syringe exchange.

–  Voted against Marriage equality.

–  Voted against medical marijuana.

“The task of filling up the blanks I’d rather leave to you.

But it really doesn’t matter whom you put upon the list,

For they’d none of ’em be missed – they’d none of ’em be missed!”
