Porcupine's Quill
March 5, 2017


News Item:  On top of his military spending, immigration banning speech, Donald
Trump has started bombing Yemen.

I dreamt I was the Red Baron dropping bombs and shooting down airplanes, and I
thought ... what a waste of airplanes.

Must be your Scots side.  What about the people killed?

Never thought of that ... they were the enemy.

Yes, the enemy is always faceless.  Anyway, the Red Baron WAS the enemy.

He was German like my grandfather ... my German side.

We were fighting Germany in the First World War ...

Well, whaddya know?  I'll have to watch out for Angela Merkel.

Anything else?

Oh, I also dreamt I was an Afghan hound.  Amazing!  Beautiful!  Long, silky golden
hair all over my body.  I looked beautiful.  You know it shouldn't be difficult to make
peace with people who have dogs like that.

They don't.  Their dogs look meaner than pit bulls ... larger, with ears chopped off.

This is too damn complicated.  In my next dream I'll nuke the whole lot ... 'You're
fired,' I'll say ... (laughs)

Let's hope it remains a dream ...
