A New Hat Trick

In 1969, as I was leaving High School and entering college, I was convinced that the country had passed from reality into a twisted version of the twilight zone.

After all, an Edsel was worth $100,000, the NY Mets had won the World Series and Richard Nixon was President.

In the intervening forty-eight years things gradually recovered some sense of normalcy following Nixon's resignation.

Until now that is.

As we enter 2017, a Cheeto that looks like the gorilla Harambe has sold for $100,000, the Chicago Cubs have won the World Series and Donald Trump is President.

I can only pray that history will continue to repeat itself.
