Something to Know - 24 October

One last thing before I leave town.  Courtesy from Matt Cartmill - Pomona Class of 1964, and Boston College Professor of Anthropology:

Following today's sensational announcement that the U.S. government is building a "big, beautiful" wall in Colorado to keep the Mexicans out, President Trump further amazed political observers by revealing that he has ordered the U. S. Geological Survey to begin expunging Spanish place names from the American map.  Initial substitutes for deleted names include the Sawtooth Mountains, the states of Red-Colored and Snowy, and a large number of Western cities including The Angels, The Meadows, Saint Louie the Bishop, Fatfort, and Seen Saw.  "I don't know who is responsible for this stuff," declared the President, "but I do know the Democrats are going to oppose me every step of the way on this, because they hate our country.  And what's with this 'New Mexico,' anyway?  Not on my watch, we're not going to start any new Mexico in this country.  I'm signing a Presidential order tomorrow morning to annex the place to Texas.  I can do that, you know."


Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose.
