  1. Fabulous commentary, Francine.

    I can only hope, and it is a hope, that the unspeakable atrocity of the current administration pushes the pendulum in a way that causes it to swing back.

    The massive deletions of Karl Rove’s emails, clearly a mistake since he never crossed any lines, will hold for only so long.

    The truth about this administration will unfold, and if goodness prevails, it will teach us how to prevent this atrocity from ever occurring again.
