Censor Trump

Dear Friends,

I signed the MoveOn petition: Ending live daily coverage of Trump’s COVID-19 briefings

It would mean a lot to me if you could also add your name to this important issue. Every name that is added builds momentum around the campaign and makes it more likely for us to get the change we want to see.

Will you join me by taking action on this campaign?

Just For Grins ... and to keep from crying

The idea of laughing to keep from crying has been around a long, long time has it not? Surely we've all expressed the sentiment more than once. Who knows where or when the myth originated. Maybe it got started about the time anxious individuals began to whistle in the dark. Could it just be one more example of how our culture specializes in denial?

My quest for humor among the issue weeds surrounding us may be a case of jousting with windmills. I'm willing to be your daily Don Quixote on this one. Will you be my Sancho Panzas ... valiantly contributing your own discoveries to our shared treasure of political humor. Post 'em when yo got 'em.
