Don’t Be Fooled And Used

As I pen this (early Monday morning) a former U.S. President and a sitting U.S. Senator are about to sit in courtrooms as defendants facing felony counts for white collar crimes. I’ve been paying attention to politics since 1960 and this is the first time I can remember that happening. Oh, and they are from different political parties, so it’s a bi-partisan problem.
