There have been many ideas for postings

but I have been too busy and/or tired to post them.

However, I have been thinking lately of that lovely backhanded compliment allegedly* paid our nation by the great Otto von Bismarck — “There is a special providence for drunkards, fools, and the United States of America.”

I suspect that’s the only way to truly explain the election of 2016. God took pity on us…but not too much pity, or we might start expecting it all the time.

Hopefully more later this week.

* Alas, no evidence exists that he ever said that.
