Want to Protest? Thank Your Local Police Officer

Well, I guess you can tell I haven’t much to do since I’m writing again. Just waiting for the kid to come home from school now. In the meantime, yes, I know there are probably other things I could be doing rather than watching TV and writing dumb stuff here. But, here I am!

Just the News, Please

It’s becoming more difficult to read the news. Listening to it is almost impossible already simply because most of what is proffered as news, isn’t. It’s opinion.

He was, well, gleeful to be rid of Trump. I of course, reminded him that Biden was not confirmed as the winner. there are challenges and court cases to go through before the December 14th conclave of the Electoral College.
