Well, Jay, I ain’t no spring chicken myself — be 77 in April. I bet that will shock a lot of my followers. One of my pet theories of why seemingly good folks like yourself were willing to take a flyer on the Donald is simply that the mind hates change, and now a lot of folks feel run-over my our current warp speed changing world.

I know Trump is supposed to signify change, but it is a back to a slower more stable past sort of change, a kind that one’s basic ego craves.

Let’s just hope for a miracle.
