The other major political story (and outrage) of the week just passed is the apparent death of federal voter protection legislation. I say apparent because it’s never over until it’s over but to put it in medical terms the prognosis is not good. At this point I am encouraging the Democrats to take what I will call the Political Option.
I’d like to stop writing about Donald Trump. I really would! But he simply won’t go away and in fact is an increasing threat to America. On Wednesday morning he showed one of his weaknesses. Will the authorities exploit it?
It is Tuesday morning September 28, 2021 as I tap the keys of a computer’s keyboard to write this op-ed (yes, I still call them that). I see America at a crossroads with simultaneously much promise and much peril. There is no way I can cover all that in a few paragraphs – it would easily take volumes – but I’ll give it a go. Please come along for the brief ride.
