Today in My History
Cast (updated 7/16)
8 January 2021
I've been glued to the TV for the better part of two days. I often found myself in tears, as I watched the rioters destroying the offices of the representatives.
This guy is sitting in Pelosi's office. He says it's not HER desk, it's HIS desk and he has just loaned it to her. He claims he left a 'quarter' in payment for a letter he took from the Speaker's office.

Now to see if I can sleep tonight. Someone suggested (facetiously) that I consider becoming an alcoholic and that might make me sleep better. Having come from a long line of alcoholics on both sides of the family, I think insomnia isn't all that bad.
