Yes, I know the article is a year old.

Didn’t the “real” inauguration take place yesterday? Have the Democrats been arrested pending military tribunals and executions?

I’m not seeing any reports in the fake news!

I have no problem taking his earlier stuff out of the curriculum. I’m surprised it was in there this long. But in his later years he produced some very progressive stuff. The Lorax of course is pro-environment. Butter Battle Book advocated nuclear disarmament. Horton Hears a Who is about the power of the little people raising a voice. Horton Hatches the Egg is about love which transcends fixed social roles. Yertle the Turtle is about fascism and how it can be overthrown by the people at the bottom. Green Eggs and Ham about leaving our cultural comfort zones. The Grinch is anti-materiaist. I could come up with more examples.

This means I can get back into the gym! Looking forward to it.
