What a week!
Seattle is nearly wiped off the map by a Pacific typhoon. Fascism grows like a cancer on the pancreas of the body politic. Hordes of drug-addled homeless people invade the parks, eating children and leaving booby-trapped piles of poisonous needles in their wake.
All we need now is war with Russia to make our anxieties complete.
It’s easy enough to see why some people are retreating into a fantasy of “the good old days” when America was a shining city on a hill, women were for keeping house and making babies, and everyone was white. We were safe, then, and the world was ours for the taking. Make America Great Again!
The storm-that-didn’t-happen disappointed everyone, I think. We need a little mini-apocalypse, just to relieve some of the tension!
