Almost every day there’s an article in the news noting that some Arabs have blown up some other Arabs who don’t worship Allah in the proper manner. In America some student uses a gun to blow away some other students for unknown reasons, the Republicans are either corrupt or crazy, the Democrats are either inept or lazy, the elected are only interested in their own re-elections and, for what it’s worth, 1 percent of the world’s population owns 46 percent of the wealth.
In our state the governor wants to finance religious education by taking away from public education, Big Oil is the recipient of whatever it wants, tennis courts trump hockey rinks and the weather has been awful.
The bears and the ground squirrels are the only ones handling all of this in a rational manner this winter.
