With all the political savvy of a clothes pin, I can hardly claim the right to comment on the United Kingdom's vote to divorce itself from the European Union. I thought yesterday's vote would be to remain part of the union. In the event, voters signed the divorce papers and from where I sit, it feels like war... again. But as I say, my sense of the growing divide between wealth and poverty, the rise of feudalism, and the bureaucrat-instilled fear may be ill-informed and perhaps mediocrity will not necessarily prevail.
Still, with real estate tycoon Donald Trump strutting the American political hallways and spouting uninformed bullying gibberish, perhaps it is time for those who work for a living to reclaim some larger portion of the economic pie. "If," the Somali security officer once said, "you do not share your wealth with us, we will share our poverty with you."
The rise of mediocrity. The enthroning of self-referential ignorance. All hail, Israel.
I think I should return to clipping the sheets to the laundry line.
