Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs,
And towards our distant rest began to trudge.

There is a persistent myth that depression and suicide increase during the holidays.
It was even a memorable line in When Harry Met Sally (yeah, I’m a straight guy who loves that movie — deal with it).
In any case, there is no doubt that suicide — whether related to the holidays or not — is an Ame...Read more of this blog post »

And I had disturbed these wise people.
Was I mistaken?

Looks like Trump's got that wall coming along nicely and they've also renovated the already-existing fences. Good man, if I had voted for him in 2016 (which I 100% guarantee you, spear to God Himself, that I would have) then it remains that I would not have regretted that hypothetical vote...
