Oh dear! You must have me confused with someone important or influential. I’d love to talk to you about any number of things. But...

In this place people hardly even talk to me. If they knew what I was up to they’d probably come around with a flaming cross and a few shotguns. If they found out I was Jewish...

I’m the only person in this area using Medium because, probably, I’m the only one who can write AND who is willing to go public with anything they might have to say. (Other than those 60 second screeds on Facebook the loonies do.) People get shot at when they go to the local Democratic Party gatherings. I am a member of the Democratic Socialist organization in Memphis. I hear their meetings are rather secure. But I’ve never gone to any, because I don’t drive long distances.

And you wonder why the Kisbers have left...

Even the POC around here think climate change is a hoax. And they’re largely anti-Semitic, as well.

This, where I live, is an ultra-conservative farming community served by Sen. Marsha Blackburn (until she decides to die) and I don’t even know who our congressperson is (oh, of course I do! he’s David Kustoff, some supposed Jewish lawyer from Memphis—probably and secretly a convert to Southern Baptist—who is now shilling for Trump like everyone else around here). There is NO ONE for me to talk to and get to come around on any issues that you and I might agree upon. Trust me.

Except for a few loonies. I’ve met them online. I know.

Except perhaps my cat and a few of the raccoons I feed every night. And probably not all of them, they are fickle, you know. Not loonies. Just fickle.

For crying out loud, they hate me for not mowing my lawn!!! And I’m not talking about the raccoons.

And paid??? If there were anything I could do for you, I’d do it gratis. That offer is open. My mind is yours. For whatever that’s worth. I work almost 10 hours a day doing...this. And I’ve been at it for a long, long time.

I even make money doing it at times. But for you? Gratis.
