how important is it,

media fear mongers of the world,

that Julian Assange has

“silver hair”---

you seem to include it in every

description of what is happening

to him,

what he has done in his life thus

far &

somehow you squeeze it into

every possible story

that has anything to do with him---



if the man had been born with a


Johnny Depp dark brown,

would he still be depicted as some

kind of crazy madman character

from a blockbuster that comes out

in the summer,

bearing the need for some hero to come &

wipe the world clean of him?


maybe if he had


David Caruso red & a pair of Ray Bans

always on,

he’d be seen as a tough coppish type who

never takes off his suit jacket,

no matter how hot it is in Miami &

the world would fall in love with him

every time they see his picture?


we are talking about a man who has

dealt a wonderful blow into the stomach

of the policeman who runs the world,

someone who’s organization continues to

allow whistleblowers to expose vital truths

in a world full of lies &

all that you can find worthy of description is

the man’s

silver hair?
