  1. Thank you. I wrote that a while ago, but was unable to post it. As a matter of fact, I wrote it so long ago that I’d forgotten about it. I found it recently and wasn’t going to bother since it seemed too old. Then, I had a thought: Trump may be gone, but his violent, misguided fans are still walking the streets. We shouldn’t dismiss all of them as simple-minded buffoons. Some are dangerous. Hopefully, they either wake up to reality or find a less destructive outlet for their pent up angers and frustrations.
