Gaia and Kira, two champion-stock purebred Rhodesian Ridgeback females in this house. Numbers 3 and 4 in the series. They’re flawed (short ridge, kink in the tail).

Ask if they support Trump, and receive a look of incredulous confusion. To be fair, their command of English is fairly limited, though they can open lever and sliding doors…

As a Soviet expat, I’d have to lose intelligence, sanity and/or integrity to feel good about any of this. Still have a bit of those left, so, NO.

Nothing sensible about the events of the past year.

For a decade, I speculated who would be president first: Nero or Caligula? Historically consistent, Caligula it is.

From Wiki: “…he is described as a noble and moderate ruler during the first six months of his reign. After this, the sources focus upon his cruelty, sadism, extravagance, and sexual perversity, presenting him as an insane tyrant. While the reliability of these sources is questionable, it is known that during his brief reign, Caligula worked to increase the unconstrained personal power of the emperor, as opposed to countervailing powers within the principate.”

So, you see, it can only get better. Eventually. (snark)
