The rule of law: there was a time when it would be no question of exactly what those four words mean. Now, I’m not so sure; we’re bucking directly up against notions so un-American and un-constitutional that it makes you wonder where ultimately we’ll all end up, especially with an avowed alt-right persona (white supremacist) in a prominent position in the White house.

The local gas utility had been hammering the entire day along the block, even when I arrived home from work. They kept that up until maybe 7 so that the subsequent quiet was appreciated and thorough.

It endorses ideas that are too far off the beaten, true and calm path and props up philosophies that truly can’t stand up to the muster of the basic ideals of this land we call America. But that doesn’t seem to stop them from trying. Continue reading
