When I was growing up (not that I’ve stopped), my Mom would engage us children, every day, with some kind of a “mental exercise”. Instead of watching TV, we were forced (oh the horror) to read books (laugh if you will, but I read every installment of “Little House on the Prarie” and loved it). WHen it came to social quandries, she was equally instructive. Now that we’re in the “Age of the Trumpers” it’s time for me to take my Mom’s advice and say something nice. Five things in fact.
