Yes, it does, Deborah.
Which is kind of the point of any pointed satire:
“The difference between satire and humor is that the satirist
shoots to kill while the humorist brings his prey back alive —
often to release him again for another chance.”
— PETER DE VRIES
“Satire’s nature is to be one-sided, contemptuous of ambiguity,
and so unfairly selective as to find in the purity of ridicule
an inarguable moral truth.”
— E. L. DOCTOROW
“A satirist is a man whose flesh creeps so at the ugly and the
savage and the incongruous aspects of society that he has to
express them as brutally and nakedly.
— JOHN DOS PASSOS
Thanks a ton for reading and for your support, Deborah.
