Stealing the election

Stealing the election

A few years ago, a Democrat operative walked into the print shop where my wife worked and asked her to make him a post office cancellation stamp. When she told him they didn’t make that type of movable letter stamp, he requested a stamp with a single fixed date just before the election. She figured that was odd and reported the matter to the area postal inspector who told the man it was illegal to possess such a stamp. The man therefore had to go to a print shop in Mexico to get one made. At that time two factions in Progreso were fighting and the election campaigns were getting ugly.

Who or what inspires you?

One look out the window into the reality of 2020—a year of pestilence, political upheaval, natural disasters, racial tension, loss of livelihood, closed schools, empty ballparks, mask-shaming—and it’s easy to understand the metastasizing grief and fear that can hijack our senses and our inspiration (not to mention our faith). The Ancient Greeks believed they Holschuh were inspired by the Muses (from where we get the verb to muse, as well as the noun music), nine goddesses on whose mercy the creativity, wisdom, and insight of all artists and thinkers depended. I read that poets like Homer, Virgil, and Ovid were thought to have no talent of their own. They received their inspiration from the only beings who held the power to create anything: the gods. I would agree whole-heartedly, though only after changing “the gods” to “God.”
