    You’re neither sorry nor taking responsibility, Opal. If Earl had put a tiny chip in one of your china plates, you would have gone ballistic and he would have never heard the end of it.

    In New York City in the ‘50s, there was always something good on. the million dollar movie, the early show, the late show, The late late show, and The late late late show we’re almost always worth watching.

    Politicians of all stripes have a tendency to do this. Full disclaimer on this comment: I’m a staunch Obama/Biden supporter. In the last days of Clinton’s administration in 1996, he created the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, around 1.9 million acres of protected federal land, which outraged Utah’s conservative population – naturally they wanted that land open for development – using the Antiquities act. It was especially galling to Republicans because there had been a back-channel chain of communications going on in which the administration had promised that no such designation would be made, right up to the executive decision. Utah’s delegation felt thoroughly “Pearl Harbored,” and looked at it as a final “F U” to Utah from Clinton for not having swung Democratic.

    Subsquently, President Obama created Bears’ Ears using the same Antiquities act, and in 2017 the Orange Screechweasel cut the size of both monuments in half as a little kiss to Orrin Hatch, one of his most ardent supporters. If you want a bit more detail about this kind of “gotcha politics” which has a long and storied tradition, look for a Deseret News article called “Trumping Clinton and Obama.” It’s an interesting read.

    I think many of us are sleeping well for the first time in five years. For myself, I didn’t wake up with an ominous sense of dread to read the news about what new outrage the Orange Screechweasel had perpetrated.

    The position of copy editor appears to be moribund, if not already extinct. I can’t count the number of times I have seen “loose” used in place of “lose” in countless online news articles from otherwise reputable outlets, and that’s just one of many examples. Yes, it’s like fingernails on a chalkboard, but I’m just assuming there’s nothing for it unless we address our declining standards of ecudamation as a nashunal prollem.

    “My Ass Got Arrested.” The long nightmare will be over today, and the Biden Administration can begin the task of helping our country return to sanity, to health, and to becoming an equal partner on the global stage once again.
