What if I told you the lesser of two evils isn’t lesser?

No presidential election year would be complete without denial, delusion, deception, and de-friendings. And how could we get possibly through the every-four-years charade without those four magic words, “lesser of two evils”?

Since we’re on the topic of useless, time-sucking rituals, please allow me to re-introduce one of mine: Asking liberals to define “lesser.”

Loyal customer confronts rude laundry owner. You won’t believe what happened next.

I made it my personal mission to not let the owner’s angry energy bother me.

“Good morning,” I’d smile. It was always an effusive “please” and “thank you” when I needed change and I’d never leave without wishing him a good day. Since I often walked past Sparkle Plenty during the course of my day, I’d look in and wave to the couple. As much as it seemed to pain him, the man would usually wave back.

One day, however, I began to tire of his negativity and considered joining the exodus from Sparkle Plenty. I’m a “destroyer” by nature but it often takes me a while to get into full reinvention mode. But, with aspects of my non-laundry life requiring re-evaluation, it seemed the ideal time to finally tell this guy off and start fresh in a different establishment.

From the Who Took Johnny press kit: There are currently almost 90,000 unsolved missing person cases in the department of justice database, and it’s clear that even with all of the advancements in technology and public awareness, the problem of missing and exploited children has only gotten worse since Johnny disappeared over 30 years ago. Understandably with such an ugly issue, people would rather skip-over reading about these stories or change the channel of a news report, pretending the problem doesn’t exist, rather than confront the brutality of the exploitation and trafficking of children in our country.
