I am hearing this same essential story from people all around the country
And I’m concerned.
Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a bleeding-heart liberal. Who would be quite content to have a centrist government that legislates from consensus. And a national executive who knows how to keep an even keel. And find ways to protect the environment. And engage in sensible defense spending. And nominate centrist, not ideologue, justices to the bench at all levels.
So it’s sort of like my Episcopalian devoutness and inner Buddhist tendencies. Two things live side by side, and I’m find a way to make it work.
While I post an occasional article about the devil in the White House and the Senate that has sold its soul, I don’t often write on this blog of my deep concerns for our national, and international, order.
But here it is:
The only way that something is going to change in this country is if enough normal people start telling their senators to stand up to the insanity. I write Roy Blount (the only one of the two Missouri senators who might actually stop being craven) weekly. Are others??
God in heaven, move some hearts to move some fingers to write some senators and somehow end this madness?
Well, I just had a good cry.
Within minutes of finishing my eggs and toast.
This New York Times article had me in tears. And screaming a few select words about the President and the culture that he himself is responsible for unleashing in this country.
Friends, we need change. To better angels. And to common sense.

I love that their activism extends to putting up a large sign on the side of their garage that faces St. Louis University High School, a Jesuit prep school for boys.
This makes me happy!
