Talking to Monkeys

Winston Churchill said, “Never hold discussions with the monkey when the organ grinder is in the room.”

I liken that to holding a conversation with the “man (brain, lungs, heart) in the pan” when the neurosurgeon is present! You may make assumptions about what you see, but why not ask germane questions?


  Suit up properly and “investigate” as my grandchildren like to do.

There’s so much at stake with this year’s elections. I hope people will investigate the candidates thoroughly rather than allow the press to be the entertaining monkey. 

Stop depending on whatever news outlet you like; they are all entertainment and do fight for ratings, you know! 

Instead see what the candidates’ records are. C-span is not riveting television, but it is first-hand information. Get information, not endorsements, from the League of Women Voters. 

If America doesn’t vote intelligently, we will find ourselves the monkeys, open to many frightening experiments.
