All I can really say about the Kardashian family is that they appear to epitomize EVERYTHING that’s wrong with the United States, culturally, socially, and economically. Joss Whedon’s Buffy-the-Vampire Slayer, by contrast, stood as a mythic allegory, bulwark and decently fighting but above all honorable symbol of “truth, Justice, and the American Way” with deep integrity. Buffy came at the final tail end of “the Good Old Days” of the American Middle Class as it existed in the 20th Century. The series was known for wonderful dialogue, unique plot situations, memorable characters, but above-all for well-described and portrayed dynamic situational discussions and dissections of moral ambiguity, consistently resolved in favor of right and fair outcomes. The Buffyverse, although created by a self-proclaimed atheist, was a place where forgiveness and sacrifice and other Christian values (as well as abundant Christian allegory and symbolism, integrated into a world anthropological mythic inventory) were paramount in a world of liberty and self-determination. The Buffyverse of Sunnydale in Southern California was a deeply troubled place fraught with literal and metaphoric demons who seemed to symbolize both alien invasion and local degeneracy. The iconic part of the cheerleader turned vampire-slayer Buffy Anne Summers was played by Sarah Michelle Gellar from 1997-2003. She was among the greatest of all TV heroines…. filled with spunk and saucy character, a truly “All American” girl…. Buffy was particularly popular in the Southeastern United States where violent resistance to invasion and degeneracy has a long and well honored tradition, which apparently appealed to the New England born Joss Whedon who celebrated the same Confederate Rebel tradition in his short-lived Firefly series and its movie sequel Serenity. Whedon also analyzed the dark depravity and degeneracy of modern Southern California in his Buffy spinoff Angel and the also short-lived Dollhouse (like Angel, set in modern Los Angeles). These portrayals of Southern California, starring Buffy veterans David Boreanaz and Eliza Dushku, are morally equivalent and in large part indistinguishable, except for magic and paranormal phenomena, from Veronica Mars’ world in the mythic “Jupiter” California. But earlier this week, Sarah Michelle Gellar came out swinging against degeneracy again, this time with well-pointed sharpened words on Twitter rather than pointed stakes aimed at the hearts of the undead…. although characterizing Kim Kardashian as “undead” would hardly be a stretch of the moral or ethical truth……IMHO……

‘Who’s with me?’ Sarah Michelle Gellar threatened to drop Vogue after it featured Kim Kardashian and fiance Kanye West on the front cover of its April edition
Opting out: A disgusted Sarah Michelle tweeted that she was cancelling her Vogue subscription over the Kimye cover
Many question whether the celebrity couple are relevant to the readership.
Influential blogger Bryanboy wrote: ‘Twenty four years of loyalty to American Vogue and then this.’
Outspoken entertainment journalist Nikki Finke also took to her twitter to chime in on the cover, writing: ‘I’m loving the big backlash aimed at Anna Wintour for putting Kim Kardashian on Vogue cover. Issue should come with barf bag.’
But that didn’t seem to bother Anna, who must have counted on a reaction.

I would just personally add that I think there are few human beings more disgusting than the Kardashians and I write (from the Eastern Edge of Beverly Hills) that this town, this State, this Country would be a LOT better off with out them and all the corrupt cultural and social perversion they represent. When the class war comes—I hope theirs are the first heads off….. but seriously, ALL HATS OFF TO SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR! On this occasion, she has spoken for me and I hope also for millions…..
