Mike is an adventurous traveler who usually writes about his many journeys around the globe. (You can see accounts of some of his adventures by clicking here.) In the piece below, however, he turns to our politics and sends a pointed message in very few words in response to Trump's branding of Baltimore as a "rodent infested mess" and to his attack on long-time congressman, Elijah Cummings (of all people!), as a "racist."
Just Wait Until He Comes After You
I sure picked the wrong day to start watching the news again . . . Infestation...Every day a new, insulting low. I would offer a primer on race-baiting and coded racist language and outright mean-spirited ignorance, but it just hurts too much. "He says what we wish we could say," is the common refrain from supporters. Just amazing. Just wait until he comes after you, then tell me how it feels.
