My comment: We are, indeed, in a shocking mess. The words of one solitary individual can persuade three quarters of a major political party that an election has been stolen, and without a shred of evidence!

It calls to mind the words of the song… “ I’m glad I’m not young anymore”. But then, it is not Epicurean to be negative and depressed about the world. so cue for the words of another song: “Always look on the bright side of life.”
