  1. But we’ve gone through the looking glass. Anything seems possible in this country these days! *shudder*

  2. No! And that’s bad! But so much BS has been heaped on us day after day….I think we’re all numb. I know I am. My husband couldn’t believe that the “president” was saying, “Get the British Open for me.” He was flabbergasted that he was trying to misuse power like that. I was like, “Meh.” What’s new? How is that any different from everything else?!
