Today, Allan, with the marriage of Meghan and Harry, two people of great joy and ultimate sincerity, contrasted with the hateful emptiness of Donald J. Trump, we see the best and worst of humanity on full display.

Thus we can thank the Donald for at least one thing, his despicable prancing around the world stage underscores the goodness, truth and splendor of those others who truly care. Indeed, by Trump’s mere existence — his dead soul — we get to appreciate ever more the difference between those of golden hearts and the fools gold of those totally lacking in heart.
