Dear President Trump, Maybe it’s you and all the negativity you spew (you’re a handy scapegoat these days), or maybe it’s just a more reasonable take on how often it’s semi-reasonable to focus a ton of attention, money, and carbon credits on retail expenditures, but I’ve decided that it would be just fine to celebrate … Continue reading The rocky high road
Dear President Trump, What’s the thread connecting a call from our daughter in the middle of the night last night about the Cave fire evacuation zone closing in on Santa Barbara and the following happy quip from your BFF Vladimir? “Thank God no one is accusing us anymore of interfering in the U.S. elections,” Russian … Continue reading It’s not about Vladimir’s vanity

I just looked up why people are superstitious about Friday the … Continue reading Dysfunctional family dynamics R US
Dear President Trump, Sometimes I know the night before what I want to write to you about in the morning, but last night was not one of those nights.

What’s worse is that this morning all I’ve been able to think about … Continue reading Piling more suffering on suffering people is bad karma
