Time's A Wastin'

So Donald Trump liked to see the girls changing backstage when he owned the Miss Universe contest. So he once boasted to a friend in private that women let him grab their genitals because he is famous. He called comic Rosie O'Donnell a pig and inferred that a shrill reporter was probably having her period when she was so mean to him.

Okay, maybe not nice things, but they pale in comparison to the blatant bad boy antics of so many of our past presidents. "Purported wrongdoing ranges from having a serious sexual relationship outside of marriage (Washington, Lincoln, Wilson and FDR) to fathering a child out of wedlock (Jefferson and Cleveland) to having one or more extramarital affairs (Harding, Eisenhower, JFK, Johnson, Bush Sr. and Clinton)," wrote the New York Times in 1998 at the height of the Clinton-Lewinsky mess.

Believe me, I'm no fan of Trump, and once again I will say that if you all had listened to me and voted for John Kasich when you had the chance things would be so much nicer now, but hey, the current president is not the Devil incarnate. It's crazy how, with a world population of seven-and-a-half billion people, the news continues to center on that one person. One man. Just one, or in fractional terms, one seven-and-a-half billionth of the world.

Come on on people, wake up and smell the hummus! There's more to life than Trump and his family and revolving-door staff of incompetents, or even competents. You'd be wise to drop it and start living your own life before you come down with blastoma multiforme, an inoperable brain cancer, and are given three months to live, which is what's happening in the book I'm now reading. Chasing Daylight by Eugene O'Kelly describes how his diagnosis at age 53 put everything in perspective, but just a little too late. (He died.)

Yes, he died, but you are still alive! So forget about Trump and worry about something you can actually do something about. Look in the mirror; is your face a little droopy on one side? Have you been having more headaches than usual? Are you always tired? How about that mole on your neck -- was that there a month ago? I don't think so....
