Twenty years post Nixon's White House exit
my father still claimed his innocence. Some
cling to the hope that Elvis is alive. As others
look the other way as an errant spouse cheats.
Anything to maintain the status quo. Living
in a state of denial is if nothing else sedentary.
Given that it prohibits us from moving on. Or
changing for the better. Yet that's just what the

are still against him - Mr. Trump is planning
his next gig. One that given the events at our

that any of us try to avoid confrontation. Or
attempt to defer fate. We still get screwed. As
the Bible says vengeance is God's inalienable

honest assessment often falling on deaf ears.
Hence I've felt both validated and exonerated
as the facts continue to come out. That said,
I continue to fear for our future. Because as
far as Mr. Trump is concerned - this is just
a restart. His chance to inflict punishment on
all who "dissed" him. The big question being
does he still have enough power to do it.
