In making a television movie or commercial the producer will give the cameraman a cue, and suddenly the screen goes blank. On the script, that action is written: Go to Black.

Because “going to black” is a common procedure in commercial television, nobody gets too excited about it. But in the “production” of LIFE, going to black, takes on a whole different meaning, albeit an analogous one. And this one is enough to scare the living daylights out of the bravest soul.

Call me a person with a “dark” view of things, but from what I see and hear and understand, America, like a giant TV drama, is slowly “going to black” and the knowledge of that impending blackness is doing a devil dance in my mind.

In general terms, America is “going to black” in so many ways they are hard to keep track of. And the insidiousness of it is staggering.
