It’s a couple of minutes after 1:00 a.m. and I think I’m going to try to go back to bed. After I made a cup of coffee, I glanced at the clock and realized it was only 12:30 a.m., not 5:30 a.m. as I thought when I got out of bed. Rather than waste a freshly brewed cup of coffee, I decided to drink it and take a look online. That was a poor decision; I should have known a scan of the news, etc. would boost my blood pressure and distort an otherwise decent mood, turning it into a surly expression of loathing for today’s so-called Republicans. I remember when Republicans were conservatives whose philosophies sometimes were simply at odds with mine (and frequently coincided with mine). No more. Today, they are right-wing fanatics whose only philosophy is “the opposite of Obama.”
Enough of this. I will try to climb back into bed and sleep. I wish me luck.
