Okay, well, Rome seems to be fine. It’s the US of A that’s all going to heck these days. And if we don’t all do something RIGHT THIS VERY INSTANT, we’re evidently going to be headed there in a HANDBASKET.

Phsew! And thank you wonderful people for the four G’s so far! Yow!

Wink wink nudge nudge say no more say no more.
