If Life Imitated Politics

The Supreme Court announcement happened a little too late for my deadline this week, but I’m not sure I have too much to say right now.

Mr. Slowpoke and I have often marveled how U.S. politics can be so awash in unreality while other aspects of life still proceed mostly according to the laws of empiricism. Certainly there are scams and lies in everyday life too, but the idea of truth still exists in many places where society needs it to function. Airplane mechanics: still reality-based (for now)! If other fields took the same approach to facts as the White House, we’d quickly devolve into total chaos. Alas, this may be the case soon enough as all regulation of business ceases.
