The characters behind the public facade


“The world isn’t fair, Calvin.”

For the longest time I have been trying to understand and fully appreciate the basic mental processes of President Trump and Paul Ryan to better understand where they are coming from politically speaking .

I admit I have made a number of faux pas along the way but there was a recent newspaper photo showing the back of Mr T’s head ( he sports a ducktail hair style) and Paul Ryan’s boyish smile and acceptance of his president’s skill of writing executive orders and getting absolutely no results.

The two comic book characters who came to mind were Moose Mason and Jughead Jones from the Archie Comic book series.

Moose Mason (often referred to as Big Moose) , a fictional character in the Archie Comics universe. He attends Riverdale High School where he is typically depicted as the best athlete but the poorest student. His difficulties with school were later attributed to dyslexia.. Mason it is revealed is a Russian American.

Jughead Jones (sometimes shortened to Jug)  is the best friend of Archie Andrews.and a smart, snarky, laid-back, easygoing and rather odd high school student.

I have been a reader of the Archie comic book series for many years. Never did I  ever expect a character mind-set to be exposed in that genre’s line of entertainment.

With time there will be even more revelations which will cause me to search the files for a more plausible description of the president and his overly devoted followers.  — gc

Quote of the week: “What is true is already so. Owning up to it doesn't make it worse. Not being open about it doesn't make it go away. And because it's true, it is what is there to be interacted with. Anything untrue isn't there to be lived. People can stand what is true, for they are already enduring it.” ― Eugene T. Gendlin, Focusing
