Rolling in the aisles

comment

Gary Wechter has a career in comedy and doesn't know it. His July 12 letter ("Just imagine") is too funny to be taken seriously.

He thinks that a 5-4 vote on Roe v. Wade was "awkward" and isn't binding. Does that mean that every other 5-4 vote before or since isn't binding? Like the vote on Bush v. Gore in 2000?

He asks us to "imagine if our president made friends with all world leaders." Yes, I'm still trying to imagine that one, since Mr. Art-of-the-Deal has offended or insulted leaders from Canada, Mexico, the UK, Germany, and most of our soon-to-be former allies. When does the "making friends" part start?

His rationale that "children are always separated from their parents when adults are incarcerated" to justify how we treat immigrants has me rolling in the aisles (but you can't hear my laughter over the cries of those scared, terrorized children).

He thinks we should "accept the will of the people expressed in our last election." Fine by me, since "the people" chose Hillary Clinton by 3 million votes.

I'm hoping millions more of us will be laughing all the way to the voting booth this November.
