    Pat bateman's 'Wilde' Wednesday

    I have decreed a day of appreciation for Ireland's foppish most witty and poetic son, Oscar Wilde.

    Let's celebrate his works and discuss how much we love the big fop

    From Dorian Gray to De Profundis his pre-eminent talents we will certainly miss.

    "The fact is, that civilisation requires slaves. The Greeks were quite right there. Unless there are slaves to do the ugly, horrible, uninteresting work, culture and contemplation become almost impossible. Human slavery is wrong, insecure, and demoralizing. On mechanical slavery, on the slavery of the machine, the future of the world depends."

    Good man, a bit of Wilde worship can only be a good thing.

    Oscar Wilde (1854-1900).

    I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.
    Democracy means simply the bludgeoning of the people by the people for the people.

    Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess.
