    Easter 2023

    Today is Easter, and here in the U.S., many conservative Christians will work themselves up about the persecution their spiritual leader received at the hands of the government.

    The day also has something to do with Jesus.

    Frustration on the Fourth

    The fact that the Supreme Court just took away a constitutional right has made this a tricky 4th of July. It's hard to celebrate Independence Day when we American women have lost a chunk of our independence.

    Perhaps at summer's end Americans will celebrate Labor Day by firing people.

    Presidents Day 2022

    It's the day we Americans, conventionally, honor presidents past and present.

    Okay. I'm willing to celebrate William Henry Harrison, even though he served only 31 days before dying, and James Buchanan, despite the fact that he helped bring on the Civil War.

    But I can't get myself to honor that recent president who set fire to American institutions in the service of his own ego.

    It would feel like honoring Mrs. O'Leary's cow.
