    The McSweeney’s piece was right on. And for the umpteen- dozenth time this week, I’m crying.

    Thank you Kim, for providing us with a thoughtful place on the Internet – love the McSweeney’s piece and it hits even harder now. It’s really unfortunate that it’s even more relevant, three years later.

    I hope everyone, no matter what your political leanings, watched the first presentation of the January 6th committee last night. I was relieved that they spoke plainly and presented the facts in a straightforward manner. In my opinion the most damming piece of new information was the Proud Boys (and Oath Keepers?) left the rally before trump spoke meandering down the Mall and going out for tacos before the insurrection began which can only mean their actions against Congress was well planned and not spontaneous and not a “polite political discourse” and love certainly did NOT fill the air.

      It is taped, but I didn’t watch it yet. Can I just say, that a Cheney turning out to be a hero surprises me as much as seeing a quetzal (only on telly, but still …) So, all is not lost. We mustn’t give up hope. There are still a lot of good people in the world.
