How you doin' today?

Sleep well? Even with the Socialist takeover looming, spearheaded by the Black Lives Definitely Matter movement? Speaking of which, condolences on your loss -- the desecration of The Shrine On Scoville, where "black" was changed to "all."

A shock and a shame, but coulda been worse. A simple blotting out of the "v" in "lives," for instance. That woulda been mean.

Anyhow, you're busy, I know, maybe with your attention span cut off at the knees in this Age of the Tweet.

So I sign off, promising you more later from your outpost in the 40th Ward, where the alderman's a Bernie Man and livin' is easy.

So far.
