Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my dears!  How are you?  I'm doing well.  I like the fact that our winter has been relatively mild so far.  Temperatures in the 30s beat freezing in subzero temps.  Of course, there is the wind.  It blows almost constantly out there.  What does all of this have to do with climate change?  I don't know if it has anything to do with climate change, but it sure seems like something has been done to our weather.  One thing that hasn't changed: long stretches of cloudy days in winter.  I've forgotten what the sun looks like.  I think it's yellow.  And it rises in the east.  Maybe it will return one of these days.

Who won the Super Bowl?  Who cares?  Our gorgonized Green Bay Packers weren't playing, so I didn't watch.  Instead of those infamous Super Bowl commercials, I watched one for California Psychics.  Where do these guys get off with this stuff?  They have the money to run commercials on TV, but they don't have the talent I have in my baby finger.  Just a bunch of lying scammers.  They are what gives psychics a bad name.  Their only goal is money, and more money.  Go to hell, California Psychics.

Well, the City of Racine's computer system has been infected with ransomware.  Oh my!  How did that happen?  Didn't our IT people have any idea of the threats online?  Were they so presumptuous as to assume that they could protect the system from threats themselves?  I can only assume the worst.   I'm sure that Mr. Mayor Cory 'Butterball' Mason's people are arrogant swine who think that they're invulnerable.  Even before the true extent of the problem was known, 'Butterball' was announcing that the city would pay no ransom if one was demanded.  Really?  Is 'Butterball' aware of the other cities that have paid the ransom rather than rebuild their entire computer systems?  It might be cheaper in the long run.  And while we're on the subject, can someone teach city staff how to recognize phishing emails?  Apparently, one stupid person caused this infection of the city's computer system.  Gee, kind of like one stupid person running the city . . .

How is it that Racine has the highest unemployment rate in the state, and yet numerous redevelopment projects in the city go lacking for workers?  Could it be that some Racine residents would rather not work?  That seems to be the only logical conclusion.  Imagine that.  Activists in the city demand jobs for residents, but when jobs are offered, said activists are suddenly quiet.  What's up, people?  Is it true that you'd rather collect welfare than go to work?  Shame on you, shame, shame!  What will you blame your laziness on next?  Maybe the unemployed workforce of Racine has been infected by a virus that makes them indolent.  Work instills pride, and it's easy to see that many Racinians have no pride.  The only thing they're proud of is their stupidity  They will fight to the death to protect that.

Finally, RUSD.  Ugh.  They're going to ask for one billion dollars?  That's billion with a "b."  Are they insane?  Could be.  The taxpayers of Racine have given and given to RUSD.  Millions and millions of dollars have been given to them to repair and rebuild their old buildings.  What have they done with the money?  Lined their pockets?  We give them money to fix buildings, they "reallocate" the funds to their personal financial gain.  RUSD simply doesn't work.  It's time to disband it.  Goodbye RISD.

Well, my dears, that's it.  I love you all and look forward to our weekly visits.

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