The Minutemen, founded by wackaloon Jim Gilchrist, are disintegrating:
Gilchrist’s movement is falling apart, overtaken by new members whom he describes as “troublemakers with personality disorders and criminal propensities.”
As opposed to their original membership, which was entirely sane and rational.
Gilchrist, his face leathered from spending days under the scorching desert sun, takes a drag of a Pall Mall cigarette as he ponders the unforeseen turn his movement has taken. “Twenty, forty years from now, my name may pop up in the history books. It may say, ‘He was all wrong–Loon Gilchrist, he caused this,’” Gilchrist says.
It won’t take forty years, or even twenty. As some book or other reminds us, “by their fruits ye shall know them”.
