Yep! A very good analogy at that too! For a while, in late 1979 I rented a studio at Angels hotel building right across from the unit that Mark Twain at one time for one or two nights (maybe more) when the hotel was a young building in the mid/late 1800s. I think Mr. Twain wrote the story about the Celebrated Frog while he visited here.

As the death toll has worsened, President Trump’s behavior has worsened. I think his statements and rants and tweets are newsworthy no matter what, but should be reported in context, and right now the death toll is crucial context.

As the US death toll approached 50,000, Trump mused about disinfectants.

50,000 dead, and he claimed he was just pranking the media.

51,000 dead, and he attacked CNN’s owner AT&T.

52,000 dead, and he tweeted about a professional wrestler.

53,000 dead, and he touted his ratings.

54,000 dead, and he went on a misspelled rant about ‘Noble Prizes’.

Nearly 55,000 dead, and he retweeted a far-right commentator who suggested ‘lunatics’ on the left might be inflating the mortality rates ‘in an attempt to steal the election.’

    So why don't we just talk about something enlightening like our local history and heritage-like Mark Twain and how he was the catalyst for our traditional frog jump? I'm sure a lot of folks would enjoy discussing something like that and to elaborate more on history-any kind of local history, i.e., the mining, etc. That would be nice!

      Talk about whatever you want, rather that complain about others

I'm looking forward to the "Bit of Wisdom from Donald Trump" quote. You know, the one about injecting disinfectants into your lungs. Genius!
