President* Trump, Happy September! We’re inching closer and closer to November 3rd – just 63 days and we’ll be there. I know it’s possible we won’t have clear results that day (though how the election can be close enough for there to be any doubt that you lost is a travesty of justice and reason), … Continue reading Think big!
Month: September 2020
“Zero for you and two for me”
President* Trump, There truly is no bottom. There is nothing you won’t stoop to or crawl into bed with is there? Last night I had one of the worst night’s sleep I’ve had in a very long time and I woke up feeling pretty wrecked and honestly, I’m still feeling quite puny. But you know, … Continue reading “Zero for you and two for me”
We have to see each other
President* Trump, I’m at the gallery today and because September is my show month I’m getting to sit here with my work on the walls and it’s pretty cool. Mostly people are walking by outside and not stopping, but my sense is there’s a bit more curiosity than usual and a bit more eye contact … Continue reading We have to see each other
President* Trump, It used to be pretty frequently that I’d chew on something I felt the need to write to you about for several days, trying to figure out how to approach it or how to articulate it effectively. Lately, though, I’m finding I just don’t have the mental capacity or the stomach to think … Continue reading Recency bias
The wheels are coming off the Trump bus
President* Trump, Laura and I drove down to Portland this morning to see my mom and then back again this evening. Despite the masks and social distancing, we had a really nice visit and it was so good to see her – it’d been a long time. There weren’t nearly as many Trump signs along … Continue reading The wheels are coming off the Trump bus
No news is nice once in awhile
President* Trump, You know it’s been a good day when at the end of it you realize there wasn’t time (or inclination) to look at the news since the breakfast read. Although I’m sure I could make some reasonable guesses, I don’t know what’s going on specifically in the wide world and for now, I’m … Continue reading No news is nice once in awhile
A Labor Day reimagining of America
President* Trump, Happy Labor Day, you exploitative oligarch. I read an HP article this morning about your pipe dream of withholding federal funding from school districts that reform their US history offerings to more thoroughly address slavery and introduce systemic racism to students. The article included a Twitter exchange involving you and someone who goes … Continue reading A Labor Day reimagining of America
MLK’s inner circle and sexism
President* Trump, Have you read the August 28, 2020 letter by the civil rights leaders who formed MLK’s inner circle, the one where they formally pass the torch to America’s youth? I suppose not, but you sort of never know… Anyway, I’ve had the pdf open since the day it was released and featured in … Continue reading MLK’s inner circle and sexism
The procrastination gods smiled on me today
President* Trump, It’s not very often that the procrastination gods smile on me, but today they did indeed. I tweaked my back on Monday taking the sheets off the bed and haven’t slept well since so couldn’t face letter writing this morning. I really dislike putting it off until the evening, especially during the week, … Continue reading The procrastination gods smiled on me today
What’s the plan?
President* Trump, You didn’t want us to panic. How thoughtful of you. What a mensch, always looking out for the country – that’s you! No doubt about it. It didn’t take any sort of genius to know that you’d use the notion that you didn’t want to frighten or panic us as the out when … Continue reading What’s the plan?
