All in how you put it

The headlines, as I have generally found them, run something like this:

Former President Acquitted in Senate Trial

And watching someone manifestly guilty be acquitted, especially when it involves their fomenting the violent overthrow of a Democracy, is some pretty dark sauce, slathered all over our Big Macs, which have been left sitting in the sun for a few years now. 

But you know we could have gone with a different, slightly more optimistic headline for the conclusion of this business:

Bipartisan Majority of Senate Finds Trump Guilty!

They're both true. 

Mine's prettier.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
