Except for a couple of friends in Germany... friends list has been pretty quiet about the election but here's the thing, I don't intend to be. So, if you are pro-Trump, you may want to unfriend me and if you simply don't want to deal with politics, you may want to unfriend me because I have a desire to rant & rage. Not often, but often enough.

Hence this quote.

You must protest / It is your diamond duty / Ah but in such an ugly time the true protest is beauty.
Phil Ochs, folksinger_1940-1976

My clarion call,
my strongly expressed demand or request for action,
         to do my art with more purpose, beauty wedded with protest.
And to not be quiet as a charleton is normalized as respectable.
