Different Rituals

I’m in the midst of my birthday week, which means I go to extreme lengths to do things that give me pleasure each day. I’m very, very serious about my birthday. There’s no 3-year-old who is as intense about her birthday as I am about mine. I’ll probably take the next week, too, because why break up a great celebration, you know?

In any case, I’ve been concentrating on my celebratory activities when I turn on the TV and see yet another ritual burning of Minneapolis. It’s becoming clear that Americans really hate Minneapolis and burn it regularly to let the steam off. I wonder why nobody realizes that the whole thing has become quite comical.

My birthday ritual is so much better than the one everybody else is having.


The Biden administration has offered thousands of federal employees four months of paid leave if they’ll volunteer to take in migrant children who have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally.

Stray puppies get treated better than these poor children. Especially now that they are no longer needed for purposes of inane liberal posturing.
