The week reaches its end and it’s time to look back at one of the most momentous weeks any American younger than 60 has ever witnessed. HINT: you wouldn’t know it was momentous to hear from the MAGATS . . . or maybe you would. When the “Ah suppawts th’ trupes” party openly slimes the sort of officials whom they once lauded (or simply run away from them with a curt “That’s it,” you know they know it’s bad. Even Nitwit Nero himself showed the lacy edges of his Freudian slip when he declared Friday, “I do want, always, corruption. I say that to anybody.” Yeah, I’ll bet he does. He said it. The Goddess of Irony made him say it. I’m preparing to sacrifice a rubber chicken to her as soon as I finish here.
And hey: we’re all gonna read Federalist 10 over the weekend and have a rousing discussion about it next week. It’s worth the miniscule portion of your life it will take to read it to have the understanding of how we got from 1787 to 2019, from the Enlightenment to . . . whatever this is.
So we’re at the end of fund-raising for November . . . or should be. We started with $915 to go to finish the week and the month. We raised $226 of it. If you, who listen to the program in delay, would like to help make a week of fundraising free radio possible, now’s the time. Please click the link if you’d like to help fill in the $689 hole. Far more people listen to the program than help keep it going. It would be wonderful if we could reverse that trend.
