The Rest of Us
I am working on my rant for the Festivus Party hosted by my friends Gerry and Alita. This is the celebration made famous on the Seinfeld Show when guests are invited to express their grievances for the year about to end. Here's what I have so far.
I'm tired of listening to my friends who are still moaning about the election . Of course we are appalled by Donald Trump. Does the sun rise in the east? It's time to stop pouring over his tweets; time to stop rolling our eyes at his "mad dog" cabinet picks. When Mitt Romney begins to look good, you must get help! The apocalypse is now and so is the time for resistance.
I'm old enough to remember those Paul Muni movies where the resistance fighters are huddled around their radio waiting for assignments from Britain. We need to keep watching our laptops to see what Bernie is urging and what the Standing Rock protesters are doing. Light a fire under the fossilized Democrats? Start a new party? There's work to be done!
