I am slowly working on my own idiosyncratic response to the US Election Debacle of 2016. Meanwhile, I would like to reblog 2 very different responses that both deserve wide attention. Here is one of them.
Oops, the post reblogged here was from a blog that has since been deleted. It showed a photo of Donald Trump with clown makeup and a silly grin. Below the photo was some darkly humorous poetry to the effect that he would trash our little blue planet.
Now I have another reason to prefer getting the net effect of a reblog by manually excerpting from a post and adding my remarks separately (both in the comments section of the original post and in my reblog). It is more work, but I have more control and will not be left hanging if the original post disappears.
