And then there’s good ol’ America
This actually makes me so angry. The truth is right here and people see it and brush it aside. We really could make things better. But no, America apparently wants to suck forever.
You know, America, if we spent some money investing in education instead of making sure the ultra-rich were even more ultra-rich, we could *actually* be the exceptional nation that we pretend to be.

"It’s always february 2nd and there is nothing I can do about it."
So this is difficult, it turns out. I guess that should have been obvious, but still, difficult.
Tuesday we did a short walk from Gorham to Pinkham Notch — basically straight up the mountain. As we arrived at an Allegheny Trail Camp, the rain began, and with it began an insane 36 hours.
Frank: Morton once told me I could never be like him. Now I understand why. Wouldn’t have bothered him, knowing you were around somewhere alive.
Harmonica: So, you found out you’re not a businessman after all.
Frank: Just a man.
Harmonica: An ancient race. Other Mortons will be along, and they’ll kill it off.
Frank: The future don’t matter to us. Nothing matters now - not the land, not the money, not the woman. I came here to see you. ‘Cause I know that now, you’ll tell me what you’re after.
Harmonica: …Only at the point of dyin’.
Frank: I know."

Welcome to December.
Here’s the recording of the December short story I wrote for the Calendar of Tales, which I made with everyone for the Blackberry Keep Moving project.
(Feel free to put Decembery Music behind it and mash it up with anything you like.)
God is in the rain
While out sailing on the sea
I bumped into the Savior
And He said pardon me
I said “Jesus you look tired”
He said “Jesus so do you,
Sit down son
‘Cause I got some fat to chew’"
