  1. I’m always impressed with your blog and writings and this is no exception. I was especially interested in the last item about Trump and journalists even tho you indicated that if I agreed with you, I could skip it. I’m glad that I did not skip it but seeing everything compiled in front of me regarding the dangerous positions of the current president – well my Saturday morning has been amped up a bit higher than normal. The man is the personification of the title of a popular novel from a while back – Clear and Present Danger. Another great job, Andy.
