Ora and Labora

There are fruitless conversations.  Conversations with people who think Melania is smart because she speaks multiple languages and in the same breath, negates the intelligence of  Elizabeth Warren, claiming, “people think EW is smart because she taught at Harvard Law.  (Well, it’s a pretty good start) Conversations where indefensible behavior, such as separating immigrant children […]

Rip Van Winkle my ass.

Sometimes, I am so fucking exhausted.  Just want to lie down, pull the covers over my head, and sleep Rip Van Winkle style, exhausted.
