Welcome to the Reader Rant Roundtable for February, 2017!
It is the third month of WINTER in the Northern Hemisphere, and the last month of SUMMER in the Southern Hemisphere, and it's the shortest month to boot, with only 28 days this year, and it's recognized in both the Julian and Gregorian calendars. Aquarians and Pisceans come to us in February, so does romantic love, if one buys into the classical tale of Saint Valentine.
We're doing our best to spread the love here at the Rant because Lord knows, after the January we've all been through, there is a shortage of the stuff.
Here is a reason for a modicum of hope: the level and rapidity of resistance has been historic. Trump has mobilized so many people!

Here, as elsewhere, people are outraged at what feels like a rigged game -- an economy that won't respond, a democracy that won't listen, and a financial sector that holds all the cards. - Robert Reich

For me, it was near the end that most struck me. When you finally see what that convoy of trucks and laborers did to The Wall - put a gate in it and the reason they put it in. That tells me there are still good and righteous people here.
The Anheuser Busch commercial was also good and telling in showing that racism, bigotry and all the rest have been here since the beginning, but people still want to come here and try to make a better place.
Life is like a PB&J sandwich The older you get, the moldery and crustier you get.
