Remembering speeches from JFK's mouth that lifted and inspired...even LBJ frequently hit one out of the park. But that's over...politics has devolved and become a reality show where major news media follow the show contestants 24 hours a day and seemingly more with Twitter...and the huckster commercial sales line echoes from the talking heads..."and wait...there's more." They haven't quite added canned laughter yet...coming soon? I'm becoming more and more pleased with being of a certain age and knowing the curtain call is closer than when it was raised. 


  1. I share your feeling, mostly, but I'm having a helluva good time with this election. Wouldn't have missed it for the world! I've been shown to be correct on so many of my positions, going back 25 years, at least. They will not be unfamiliar to you; you may share many. I'm so glad that I glommed on to Bernie, at the start. You may think of me as the Susan Sarandon of FB...ha! But I agree with every word she says about him. At last, it's finally about values, about principles...the ones to which we aspire. Aspirational...I think the Founders had some understanding of that when they drew up a Constitution. I've never thought this was an exceptional country, not in the way that was always presented to me. Not better than, except in our weaponry and military might. I'm going to stop now, before I get too deep into the weeds.

    1. I applaud Susan as well. And "Exceptional?" Never...we've been very lucky and for every good human here there's been 50 A-holes bringing us down. Our Founders were the exceptional humans.
