Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my dears!  How are you?  I've been better.  Monday's big storm did a lot of damage to our home and property.  We have roof damage, windows broken out by tree branches, and water in the basement.  We lost a couple of mature trees and some of the younger ones suffered breakage.  One of the mature trees actually hit the house as it went down, causing significant harm to the structure of the house.  Oh my, oh my!  Our insurance agent is supposed to take a look at it sometime today.  I'm sure that it will cost tens of thousands of dollars to repair.  We have a $5,000 deductible policy.  That will eat up just about all that's left of our savings.

This pandemic has been hard on us.  My business is in the toilet, and I do believe that this is the first time that I've seen Señor Zanza look worried.  Junior, of course, is oblivious to reality.  Oh, to be young and stupid again.  I really don't know how much more of this I can take.  We could definitely use some more stimulus money.  Are you listening, Congress, or are you just going to continue to fight your silly wars over meaningless differences?  I'm so sick of our country's political divisiveness.  People don't just disagree anymore, they outright hate each other.  Just as the COVID-19 crisis should be pulling us together, it is driving us further apart.  Ptui on politics!

When it comes to local politics, I'd like to give a plug to the best weekly webcasr on the machinations of local "leaders," Talking Racine.  Talking Racine regularly casts a spotlight on the shenanigans of those who attempt to defraud the citizens of Racine.  Their latest target is the RUSD referendum that supposedly passed in the spring election.  You won't believe the behind the scenes skulduggery that occurs regularly in Racine.  Our little mayor and his evil cabal of henchmen run this city like a Mafia crime family.  Just when you've thought that things couldn't get worse, Talking Racine reveals more of the dirt that Mr. McMayor Cory 'Butterball' Mason tries to sweep under the rug.  Thank you, Mr. George Meyers, Mr. Jim Spodick, and Dr. Ken Yorgan, for your tireless efforts to reveal the truth about Racine.

The shootings and killings in and around Racine seem to be ramping up.  I know that the Racine Police Department reports that crime is on the downswing in Racine, but that's just more politics.  The chief of police answers to Mr. McMayor, so he says what Mr. McMayor wants him to say.  A cursory look at the Journal Times, or even a casual drive through the heart of the city, reveals the truth: Racine is overrun with criminals.  Redefining what is a crime does not lower the crime rate.  It just covers up the crime with more lies.  Lies, by the way, are the currency of the administration in City Hall.  If you can smile while you kill, you belong in Racine's government.

Here's what you need to be:

Well, I guess I better get back to helping  Señor Zanza and Junior continue to clean up the mess from the big storm.  I don't know if the sewer backed up in the basement or if water from the torrential rain seeped in.  Either way, the damage is done.  We have to get it dry or else mold will eventually take over.  Ugh.

Thank you so much for reading my blog today.  I love you all and look forward to better times in the future.  Au revoir!

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