    Oh, hahahahaha, ok, fine, I laughed till I snorted. Oh my. It’s just so-o-o what it is! Yes, we are saved by these writers, may they increase!

        So well characterizes trump. Doesn’t diminish the sadness over this journalist’s death, but, you’re right, it’s sanity preservation technique. I can’t seem to be appalled anymore.

  2. Thanks for re=posting this, Jane. I hadn’t discovered that site before, and now I’m following it. It’s good to let someone else do the sarcasm, which I may or may not agree with, depending on the day/time/year etc, and to not have to worry about personally writing something similar which could, in fact, result in my own abduction/torture/dismemberment. It’s a sad, sad world we’re living in – and that’s not sarcasm.

      Glad you enjoyed it, CM. Out and Abouter is in Toronto, and lots/most of what he posts (nearly daily, sometimes more) is purely Canadian content, but not exclusively. There’s so much political activity crying out for satirizing. Boy, he can be brilliant at it. Please, please, please don’t let yourself be abducted or dismembered. The news is torture enough.
