Yesterday, in an attempted coup, President Trump urged mobs to ravage the Capitol. The heart of American democracy was penetrated and ransacked by throngs protesting Trump’s election defeat. During the process, four people died.
As the entire world watched, Donald Trump dragged the U.S. into shameful depths never before approached. As newscasters observed, we are now no better than a banana republic. The world’s leading democracy is shamed before the world.
For the safety of the country, Congress should immediately implement the 25th Amendment to the Constitution to disempower Trump before he does even more severe damage. And he should be indicted for his many crimes in office.
I never thought I’d live to see the day our country was so degraded.

Some Cassandra Effect involved here? The Press certainly had plenty of warning what was coming, but the Capital Police were not prepared.
Good point, Walt. I’m at a loss to explain why the police response was so feeble.
I’m looking forward to your talk on the Cassandra Effect at Charlestown Retirement Community on April 12th. I worked for the Army Security Agency for 32 years, retiring in 1992. I worked for the ASA School at Fort Devens, and I frequently visited NSA on TDY. I walked into the ASA offices on the 8th floor at NSA on 30 Jan 1968, only to find the place in pandemonium. Y0u know why!
Thanks again, Walt. I suspect the presentation in April will be postponed due to the pandemic lockdown. Or maybe we’ll figure out a way to make it virtual. Stay tuned.
Our catalog lists your presentation as a Zoom session.
Either I’d forgotten that or maybe never knew it. In that case, I guess the date is on.
