I don't know how you do it, Dr. Richardson, but your letters continue to be informative, eye-opening and help give us meaningful background information, while cutting through the smoke and mirrors of GOP politics. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. Juliette Sterkens - Oshkosh WI

"...appears to be getting more jittery by the minute."

More like rabidly desperate and delusional. He will get worse, much worse.

His goose is about to be cooked? And some others too? LOL

It is really amazing that the media, virtually uniformly, condemn the substantive strength of an indictment they have never seen. They have spent weeks now criticizing DA Bragg for pursuing such an ineffectual misdemeanor seven years old. I hesitate to guess as well but circumstances may prove all of them wrong and Bragg a bit smarter. Could it be that he will disclose sometime this week that Trump is being indicted for substantial fraudulent misuse of business records under New York law of which the Stormy payoff was but one example? That would seem to make much more sense and given that the state’s AG is bringing a civil case alleging numerous violations of corporate manipulations, Bragg may Institute the criminal felonious aspect? If so, Mr. Speaker’s hotheaded condemnation of a State criminal action that neither he nor the rest of us have seen will expose him once again as a tool of the most corrupt right wing no-nothings in politics! So be it for he deserves that condemnation! We shall see in few days and may justice be served at long last!

Our ducks are all FINALLY getting in a row. First Manhattan, then Georgia, then Farmer Garland will herd them into the...pen.

Looks like a gaggle of Republicans trying to figure out how they can blame Dems for the potential indictment of Trump without taking blame for any violence that may occur!

Twitter knock-off. Jittery man in Florida . Wow! Perfect analogy, Heather!!!

By the way, the picture is absolute perfect also. To me it depicts the ‘jittery man in Florida’ looking every direction not knowing who’s going to get him first!

The one looking directly at the camera, with the "Yes. And...?" expression is priceless.

I believe the illustrious Dean Wormer in Animal House said something about the Deltas "being outta here faster than sh*t through a goose." If only that expression will apply to an indictment for the jittery Florida Man.

Duck, duck, goose

The man in Florida’s goose is cooked, one of them anyway, hopefully with fatter ones to follow, leaving others to wonder whose goose might be next.

Congressman Santos’ goose is the nervous one. The others just don’t know which way to go.

Honk! Honk!

“Oh dear, oh dear!”

Wild Geese

Mary Oliver, 1986

You do not have to be good.

You do not have to walk on your knees

for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.

You only have to let the soft animal of your body

love what it loves.

Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.

Meanwhile the world goes on.

Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain

are moving across the landscapes,

over the prairies and the deep trees,

the mountains and the rivers.

Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,

are heading home again.

Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,

the world offers itself to your imagination,

calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting -

over and over announcing your place

in the family of things.

'Mary Oliver was an “indefatigable guide to the natural world,” wrote Maxine Kumin in the Women’s Review of Books, “particularly to its lesser-known aspects.” Oliver’s poetry focused on the quiet of occurrences of nature: industrious hummingbirds, egrets, motionless ponds, “lean owls / hunkering with their lamp-eyes.”

'Mary Oliver was born and raised in Maple Hills Heights, a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. She would retreat from a difficult home to the nearby woods, where she would build huts of sticks and grass and write poems.'

'As a young poet, Oliver was deeply influenced by Edna St. Vincent Millay and briefly lived in Millay’s home, helping Norma Millay organize her sister’s papers.' (Poetry Foundation) See link below.
