“Love received is comforting, love reciprocated is rewarding, and love given completely is eternal. You are immortal. Our role, our job as agents of the species, is to love someone unconditionally. It’s the secret sauce cementing the survival of homo sapiens. And to ensure we continue to enlist in this act, it’s also the most rewarding. To love someone completely is the ultimate accomplishment. It says to the universe you matter, you are an agent of survival, evolution, and life. You are still just a blink of an eye, but the blink matters.”

My grandmother, Jean wrote this note in 1993. Landline. Erin’s been my friend a long time. My grandma was more than 10 years out from the stroke that changed her life and forced her to re-learn everything, including writing. It was also the era when I’d come back to San Diego on vacation. I miss her. I disagreed with her consistently but loved her dearly.
And once again expired after that you will be taken under custody by the local cops as there are four serious allegations pressed on your name at this moment. We would request you to get back to us so that we can discuss about this case before taking any legal action against you. The number to reach us is 315-750-4432. I repeat. Thank you.
It’s always neat when I meet people who say “President N also did that in response to a criticism.” Sometimes it’s useful historical context. But often it’s a feckless way to divert criticism. The claim that every President is the same or every President is just like Trump is laughable and deserves ridicule. Moreover, the claim that nothing ever changes ever with government is also laughable. Rights to vote, rights to marry, treatment of gays, tax burden changes over the years, access to healthcare, access and quality of education. These things change. And pointing at Obama or FDR or Clinton or Reagan or Bush or whoever doesn’t negate the fact that the current President is hostile to good governance and good manners and is an affront to anyone with operating brain cells. The emperor has no clothes. Tell the truth about it without deflecting.
