Trump hopes for the Hollywood ending

Hollywood tells all kind of stories. One of the staples of the "Hollywood ending" is when the main character delivers a speech that changes the course of events of the tale. It's the Aesop's Fables morality moment where we all come to the same collective understanding that whatever had been happening up to that point... Continue Reading →

Will protest fatigue begin to show?

It's just now coming up on 13 days; not yet two full weeks since the inauguration. I believe there have been protests, rallies and protest-rallies each and every day, with no sign of slowing.

Building on my most recent piece, I want to explore further the current climate within the electorate. Without a doubt, the last two (and soon to be three) election cycles for president are no longer about record. We are not interested in the most qualified, either. We don't care about experience or integrity. All we... Continue Reading →
