A Righteous Failure


Goose and the gander thing? … “Even with a president who is not Trump, I will never blindly trust the government or the military. I’m not putting anyone on any pedestals because I don’t have any pedestals to give.”

As I posted on social media, I’ll let other cartoonists draw General Mark Milley on a pedestal.

General Milley got between Donald Trump and his nuke button days after the January 6 insurrection at the United States Capitol, committed by white supremacists on behalf of Donald Trump. Donald is insane and shouldn’t be anywhere near a television remote, less enough the button to nuclear weapons. General Mark Milley should be praised for his actions. But that praise isn’t a free pass to escape without criticism when it comes to major military fuck-ups.

After the terrorist attack at the Kabul airport that killed nearly 200 people, including 13 Americans, and injuring over 150, President Joe Biden promised reprisal.

===================================

International Talk Like a Pirate Day is a parodic holiday created in 1995 by John Baur (Ol’ Chumbucket) and Mark Summers (Cap’n Slappy), of Albany, Oregon, U.S., who proclaimed September 19 each year as the day when everyone in the world should talk like a pirate. An observer of this holiday would greet friends not with “Hello, everyone!” but with “Ahoy, maties!” or “Ahoy, me hearties!”

The holiday, and its observance, springs from a romanticized view of the Golden Age of Piracy.

There’s more … “The world was beautiful. I was a speck in it.” — Jeanette Winterson, Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? (Grove Press, March 6, 2012).

Live & Learn

I love the natural world and I never ceased to see it. The beauty of trees and fields, of hills and streams, of the changing colours, of the small creatures so busy and occupied. My long hours walking or sitting in the field with my back against the wall, watching the clouds and the weather, allowed me some steadiness. It was because I knew all this would be there when I was not that I thought I could go. The world was beautiful. I was a speck in it.
