"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

Trolling, trolling, trolling....

Oddly, I learned this morning (NPR, "1A") that Melania Trump has a staff of 10 (skeletal compared to the usual 25 or so a First Lady needs) and does what she wants to do when she wants to do it.  Two different reporters (interview on "Fresh Air") mentioned that.

So no staff member had the clout to say "No, we're not doing that today", and Melania knew exactly what she was doing.  Which, given the chaos of this past week (and a North Korea agreement Trump clearly doesn't understand, another disaster we haven't come back to assessing yet), this could end up being the cherry on the sundae of the week.

A shit sundae, you should pardon the expression; but still.

Later that same day.....

Um...sure, whatever, dude.
