Thanks, Southern Cross.

I do believe FB is cracking down on all my posts as Fake News, having never heard of satire, or not being able to make the distinction.

I need to tell them that satire predates fake news by 300 years and is a legitimate form of political protest — as Jonathan Swift, Mark Twain, the Smothers Brothers, and Colbert and Oliver can attest.

Throwing the baby out with the bathwater makes for a smelly swamp.

Thanks, SC.
