Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my honeys!  How are you?  I'm getting along.  The weather has been very summer-ish.  Too bad that the pandemic and Racine's "Safer Racine" ordinance forbid most team sports.  So, you can go out and walk around in the parks, but you can't play football or baseball in any of them.  At least, not legally.

Who's going to enforce the new ordinance?  The Racine Police Department, I assume.  Of course, the RPD has nothing better to do.  I'm sorry for being sarcastic, but I really resent Mr. Mayor Cory 'Butterball' Mason's and Public Health Administrator Ms. Dottie-Kay Bowersox's move to force their agenda upon us.  This is what happens when inexperienced people encounter a crisis.  The heavy handedness demonstrates how quickly our rights can be subverted by those in power.

It's too bad that more businesses can't return to normal commerce.  The coronavirus is still very vigorous and contagious.  It has blown a massive hole in the economic balloon that had been riding so high.  If COVID-19 were a person, I'd punch it in the face. 

When I wrote the salutation of this column, I was struck with a vision of a honey badger.  Badgers, of course, are Wisconsin's state animal.  The honey badger, however, rises to the top of the species: 

It kind of looks like a skunk.  In fact, maybe it is.  Well, whatever it is, I don't ever want to meet one.

Having an insane animal as a mascot avoids the pitfalls of teams named after Confederates and Native Americans.  Do you think the Washington Redskins will become the Washington Reds?  Or something else?  I think that would be great.  It's time to do away with symbols that exploit the memory of so many downtrodden people.

Hmm, I haven't received any mail lately.  Perhaps no one else wants to know their future?  Could that be?  Oh my

Thank you for reading my blog this week.  I appreciate each and every one of you.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Please be sure to respect one another.  It's our best hope for peace.
