I am in my cheerful co-op at the Watergate. It’s very late. I spent the last three days at the University of Mississippi — Ole Miss — and its home base, Oxford. Herewith, a few observations:
The men and women of Oxford are the friendliest, most polite, helpful people on earth.
If your child is thinking about college or grad school, give Ole Miss a visit.
Two: There was a giant riot in 1962 when James Meredith tried to desegregate the school. Three men died beneath the Mississippi moon. That is ancient history. Ole Miss is diverse, open, cheering each other on. It is pretty close to paradise.
Plus: Mississippi is famous for its gorgeous women, and rightly so. Where do they all come from? Why are there so many with open, regular features just like my goddess wife, whose family is originally from the Delta? What is the genetic magic? It is the reverse of a horror movie. No demons. Just angels. And there are also stunning numbers of handsome men and good dogs.
As I think of this I realize that I am the richest man on earth for this simple reason — I have the best wife on earth. Kind, generous, brilliant, forgiving, witty, patient — true saint and as beautiful as Ingrid Bergman.
How did I get so fortunate? Beyond belief. Yes, beyond imagining. I look at her face in in profile next to me and I feel the presence of the Lord.
Next: I am insanely in love with my dog. I see the craziness of the modern world. I feel the fear over the future that all of us old people feel. I am sure we are heading for painful days as a nation. I fear for the Constitution. I fear for our children and grandchildren. They have already lost Free Speech, as it succumbs to PC. But then I look at my Julie asleep next to me, feel her furry goodness and know I’ll get by, and so will my wife, who has Jojo. German shorthairs. Angels.
Back to Topic A: commentators say Hillary’s scandal is the worst since Watergate. Not so. Hillary’s mess is far worse than Watergate. RN, the greatest peacemaker in the national history, is alleged to have attempted to obstruct justice one time. No conviction. Just allegations. Hillary and her pals actually destroyed 33,000 emails under federal subpoena, smashed her computers with hammers, used super tools to wipe clean her hard drive, lied about it repeatedly to the FBI — and mysteriously were friends with a lot of witnesses who turned up dead.
RN was a small time parking violator compared with Hillary’s Al Capone.
Oh, well. I can’t change the world. I can just appreciate the gifts the Almighty has given me. Especially my goddess wife.
