How the GOP Slowly Went Insane – Jon Lovett – The Atlantic

“This moment in American political life is insane. That a group of narrow-minded zealots could push us to the brink of economic ruin, that they maintain a base of support in their frenzied, quixotic, incompetent gambit, that there is an apparatus that exists to defend this kind of nonsense—it came on us slowly but it is no less an emergency. This is broken. This cannot go on.

“And if you can’t see that then it’s not just the world that’s gone mad. You’re crazy too.”

Our friends Glen and Darrell booked this vacation first and urged us to come along too.  Here we are in Halifax at a place called “Peggy’s Cove.”
Ate my first-ever lobster!

Island in Bar Harbor.  It was a beautiful day but our shore excursion to Cadillac Mountain got cancelled due to the US Government Shutdown.

In Boston, we walked the Freedom Trail and saw plenty of historic sites.  Here is “the cradle of liberty,” Faneuil Hall.

Boston has pianos sitting in public places, and of course I couldn’t resist playing!
