Multiple Reports of Racist Trump Graffiti in South Philly

Within twelve hours of America electing Donald Trump, no less than four instances of graffiti were reported to local police in South Philadelphia. Some of that graffiti was openly and cowardly racist. I saw the report from Philly.com, which included a picture of the words ‘Sieg Heil’ spray painted in black on an empty storefront window on Broad Street. I recognized the storefront. I’d passed it dozens of times, on my way to and back from the local grocery store. Immediately, I stopped what I was working on, putting my keys in my pocket and slipping out of my slippers and...

Poetic Injustice: Final Debate of the 2016 Presidential Election

The transmogrification of reality in America continued earlier tonight as Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump engaged in the third and final debate of the 2016 presidential election. Clinton came out in Las Vegas, Nevada, dressed as a cream-colored corrupt criminal bureaucrat while Trump wore his usual attire of orange tear-gas tinted facial features and a blood-soaked tie tucked underneath his suit jacket. Fox News hardballer Chris Wallace was set to moderate. He wore glasses. I almost wrote class. There was very little to be involved. First issue up for debate was debt and entitlements. (At least I think it was.)...
