One of the problems we in America have just now is what we don’t know. Fake news? Real news? Experience? Make-believe? Altruism? Pocket-lining?
With nearly half-a-dozen investigations afoot – in Congress, in the office of the Special Counsel, in the Washington Post and The New York Times – wires are being crossed and what’s released to a pubic that cares is increasingly confusing.
Our reactions are not singular. As each day passes with more and more “Breaking News,” anger grows, impatience, suspicion.
Regardless of whom one voted for, the results can now be seen to be, in our mind, disastrous. Hiring a hockey rink jammed with ballet dancers – in effect, calling upon friends, neighbors, and family members – none of whom have any skating experience – is more than ridiculous. It’s incredibly stupid. Matching these artistic bozos with tasks to perform for the good of the public is tantamount to handing a six month old a bottle of J&B. Balance is not improved, and knowledge is nowhere garnered. Occasionally a good prima ballerina can be turned into a wizard on ice, but this happens so rarely we’d hardly recognize her. It certainly isn’t happening in Washington today.
