Reporting from the bleacher seats …

Nancy Pelosi leads from behind.

While I wait for Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, and others to take a seat and lead from behind, Nancy Pelosi invited Stacey Abrams to deliver the Democratic response rebuttal to Trump’s State of the Union Address Shout Out To Us All scheduled for February 5, 2019.

Stacey Abrams is the anti-Trump.

Nancy Pelosi is cold. She elevates a DNC up-and-comer while standing heel on Donald T. Her house. Her invite.

Bravo! May other national politicians with lots of experience take note and lead from behind by elevating and mentoring others too.

Hell is frozen.

As temperatures in the Midwest this week compete with the Arctic, we are reminded that hell is hot. Although we need to do a bit more research, our working theory is that hell is hot because the Bible scribes were familiar with hot weather and fire. They were familiar with being burned.

But! If those scribes of olde had been exposed to the extreme Arctic blast of the past few days, refrigeration and cold, we’re certain that hell would be described as a frozen place.

Our theory? Write what you know and Bible authors knew hot and full of burning.

A Very Cold Short Story: To Build a Fire

Jack London wrote sentences that were as clean as a bone and the title is misleading. This story is not about building a fire, but it is COLD.
