(For my TRUMP SPEECH, please see the post below this one…thanks)
I have two things on my mind this afternoon I wanted to share, particularly because Gene Wilder has passed away.
- I was at Cedars Sinai on a job when I was walking through the ER waiting area some years ago. I saw a woman who was obviously very, very ill; sunken cheeks, gray skin, bandana over a hairless head. My heart went out to her and I happened to look at the man sitting next to her, looking so miserable, and my eyes opened widely (I can still feel it) because I realized the woman was Gilda Radner, Mrs. Gene Wilder. I was miserable because I he stared into my eyes as if to say “Yes, it’s her and she’s so sick..” and I felt so badly that the depth of her illness had registered on my face for him to see it. That man loved his wife. I pray for his family in their loss
- The next thing I’d like to address is the football player who won’t stand for the national anthem, Kaepernick. The NFL says it’s his right…they don’t endorse his actions, but it’s his right. If I were the NFL, I’d say “It’s your right, but it’s OUR UNIFORM and you don’t do it in OUR UNIFORM.” He’s still speaking out about police brutality today, having bought into “hands up, don’t shoot” lies and Black Lives Matter violent call for killing cops. Nice guy (not). And, of course, others are beginning to follow. And this man who isn’t smart enough to , he stands to make $44 million in a 3 year contract.
