The WSWS arts beat -- always a little behind (Ava and C.I.)

We like the WSWS.  They provide important articles and cover topics largely under-reported.

That said, their arts coverage is a joke.

It worships at the cock of any male musician.

It repeatedly and regularly trashes women.

And, to substitute "WSWS" for "police" in Tracy Chapman's "Behind The Wall," the WSWS always comes late, if it comes at all.

We were reminded of that reality when we read Andre Damon's dismay over season three of Netflix's House of Cards starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright.

He's surprises that season three includes the new president (played by Kevin Spacey) presenting an attack on Social Security.

We're surprised that he can't label it an attack on Social Security -- that's exactly what it is.

But we're even more surprised that he's just discovered it.

We stopped streaming early in season two when Frank (Spacey) presented this lofty goal and argued it -- from the left, you understand.

We saw it and we were appalled.

We're not understanding how Damon missed that in season two.

Frank was very clear about wanting this and the show was very clear about presenting this attack as reasonable, learned and non-partisan in season two.
