Twelfth Night, or Whatever


I
t’s Twelfth Night as I write this, and this Christmas season finally reaches its end. It’s also the anniversary of the date in 1846 when the US House of Representatives voted to end the sharing of Oregon Country with the British, leading to the division of Cascadia between the US and Canada. And in 1895 Alfred Dreyfus was wrongly stripped of his rank and sentenced to Devil’s Island for an act of treason he didn’t commit, while the conservatives of that time cheered. I could write about either of those things, I suppose, but I’m tired and depressed and not feeling much like any of this. I think I’ll just let this one go.
