Free Chat Friday, Week 28

Happy Friday News Viewers, over half the year of 2021 has passed. While my elderly Dad is quoting “The moving finger writes and having writ moves on” from the Rubaiyat, those of us who haven’t lived for almost a century are seeing less perspective and more crazy. As one writer said:

“The heat made people crazy. They woke from their damp bedsheets and went in search of a glass of water, surprised to find that when their vision cleared, they were holding instead the gun they kept hidden in the bookcase.”

Kristin Hanna, Summer Island

Full on, no holds barred, rubber room CRAZY describes the US right now, her politics, politicians, policies and potential. And continuing with this dreaded p-word theme, we also have pockets 🙂 of sanity here and there, where those talking have something to say. . . .

What are you seeing in your neck of the woods? The crazy or the sane? Something in-between? Share and share alike on Free Chat, where we remember (since we are in quoting mode anyway), that the great Ray Bradbury said we only have to worry when it’s about 92 degrees Fahrenheit; “over one hundred, it’s too hot to move. Under ninety, cool enough to survive.” But 92 is the “apex of irritability, everything is itches and hair and sweat and cooked pork. The brain becomes a rat rushing around a red-hot maze. The least thing – a word, a look, a sound, the drop of a hair and – irritable murder. “

The guy had a way with words. So do we. What do you have to say this Friday, July 16. 2021?
