24 February 12020 is Estonian Independence Day. In Mexico it is Flag Day. It is August Derleth’s birthday as well.
Future President Sanders has apparently triumphed in
Nevada and looks increasingly likely to be the Democratic nominee. The current
president says that the nation owes him four more years in the office because
of all the time he had to waste dealing with investigations of his conduct
(former president Clinton might have something to say on that subject) and indicates that he has no intention of handing the
office over peacefully. Is this some kind of joke? I would assume so—but apparently
for our current crop of Republicans the Republic is a joke and its Constitution
so much birdcage lining.
