|So Why Don't I Feel Safer?|
June 13, 2018
According to Trump, the summit with North Korea was a success, and we can all feel safer. I'd like to believe him. I don't. He says he trusts Kim Jong-un. I don't. I don't trust Trump either. I'm an equal opportunity skeptic. I don't trust politicians, period. None of them. And the higher up they are, the less I trust them.
I keep thinking of Neville Chamberlain, and wondering if we're going down the same path again, and will the results be as disastrous this time around (or possibly worse). Trump and Jong-un seem equally delusional to me, and equally scary. I'll try to hope for the best........it's all I can do.
I don't usually post political comments, cause I dislike politics, and no matter what you say, someone is going to be pissed off and let you have it. But listening to the evening news just now got me very rattled. I should've stuck to TCM and watched "The Adventures of Robin Hood" instead. At least you knew who the good guys were and that they would triumph in the end. (And get the girl, too!)
In other news, I got an email today from PATTI!!! I haven't heard from her in over a year. It was a short email, but a most welcome surprise. I wrote back to her. She must be off for the summer. Wonder if I should give her a call......or wait for her to call me (Which might never happen).
I finally cut up the papaya Paul gave us. I don't think I ever had fresh papaya before. If I did, it didn't leave much of an impression. It didn't impress me much this time, either. The seeds reminded me of bunny turds. The flesh was a lovely color. It was fairly juicy, vaguely sweet, but didn't really taste like much. It was OK, but I was a little disappointed. Give me a mango any day!
Nothing much else to write about, and it's time for Jeopardy.
