Really appreciate your thoughtful comments, Gary.

I’m 60, so just old enough to remember the Cuban crisis, and the school “duck and cover” drills.

It is so hard to believe that the world could be at the brink of witnessing another nuclear detonation — the first since the horrors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki — because one wounded ego has no memory, no conscience, no brains, and no wisdom.

Going about my days as if this is not the truth is a strain. It is the truth. He is incredibly dangerous and those in his inner circle need to call him out…and then get him out.

Thanks, Gary, for the reminders.
