    Or suddenly forget what you’re talking about, like Whatsisname.

    Alex seems to reduce campaigning to managing smoothly. She’s too cool to commit to a guiding idea or platform. At the same time, she’s profoundly conservative in her deference to age, in spite of her clear view of Gram’s vulnerabilities. Is this the political wisdom of Generation X?

    About now they could probably use the services of Honey Huan.

    I was going to make a comment here but I’ve forgotten what I was going to say.

    Where are you now that Joanie needs to be warned about her creator, the god / idol (take your pick) the evil comik bible inerrant & verbally inspired and “written” verse by verse, chapter by chapter, by GTB?
     
    He’s leading to us on to apartad (segregation of some brutal kind). Tell us how to stop him cold in his trax. And imprison him in his troll booth.

    Comments on this site have repeatedly characterized Alex as a 1%er. If so, whence her money: cash? / credit cards? debit cards? genuine jewelry? / tuition at MIT? whatever?
     
    Is her source her parents, Joanie and Rick? Now the 1%ers appear much much wealthier than the Redferns, members of King George II’s “have mores” as distinguished from his mere “haves”. They live in a house that Bill Gates, e.g., would consider a dog house, if that.
     

    C’mon all ye out there who dared to include her in the super-wealthy, “have more” 1%. Ditch your Vicks drops; cough it up.

    Joanie is her grandmother. Her parents are Mike Doonsbury and Joanie’s daughter J.J. They divorced, & J.J. is pretty much a loser. But I believe Mike went on to be quite successful. Whether he’s rich enough to be considered part of the 1%, I seriously doubt. Going to MIT is NOT a sign of wealth. My sister went there, and our family was never more than solid middle class at best.

    @cdward

    Thanks, cdward. I actually knew that Joanie and Rick were Alex’s grandparents, but I had a senior moment. Alas, Alex, my apologies.

    I thought she meant protecting Joanie from upperclass hazing.

    OOPS! Alex, not a good idea…
    Kind of an “Open mouth, insert foot” moment!

    Callow youths like Alex don’t realize how many great meds we seniors have to take care of those occasional problems.
