Thank you for reading Carmen, and I very much appreciate your passionate response. I hope Mr. Trump can solve more of the problems we face than Mr. Obama. Anyone who takes on the presidency, from either party, has an almost impossible job.

And, I mean no offense, but I don’t think my growing up will solve anything. I like taking a humorous approach to the mess, not because I’m naive, but because the alternative would ruin my days. I hope, Carmen, that you will keep reading what I write, childish as it might seem to you, and that from time to time it might even make you smile. Thank you again and have a good year. –AI
