This presidential election season reads like fiction what with characters rocking extreme ideas and comical facial expressions. It all makes me worry about the Statue of Liberty. She may have seen enough and, having held back from indulging in addictive substances for so long could give in. These candidates may be her tipping point. Since addiction is in her family of origin, until now she has taken the cautious route and stayed away from it completely. But I think I may have seen her using drugs the other day. She can only take so much of our shenanigans, she can only take so much of watching the liberty we’ve been given here in the USA used haphazardly. She’s read Nathanael West’s The Day of the Locust and knows about hatred in people’s eyes and apocalyptic denouements!
