Early Wednesday my daughter and I are departing for Missouri's 7th congressional district, the very heart of the Ozarks, to give thanks that we're not represented by U.S. Congressman Billy Long. I just applied three bumper stickers to mein Hyundai wagen — "Make America Great Again," "Trump über Alles," and "Why Does Obama Hate America?" — so that we'll blend in. Inconspicuousness is the key to intelligence gathering.
I may post the occasional dispatch from Grandma's bunker in the woods, depending on events — and Internet availability. If not, I shall see you Monday morning. Till then, I say to all my American friends, Have the grandest of Thanksgivings. To all other readers I say, Be thankful you're not an American these days; it's getting ugly here. (And I'm doing my damnedest to make it uglier.)
Really, everybody … have a great one.
Oh dear, just minutes after signing off, I, Cornelius Drake, received my first missive from the Cruzian prayer group I joined.
You got it: Cough it up.
