Waiting for Godot

Lucky's speech in Beckett's classic has a refrain: "but time will tell...."

Health Care as a privilege, not a right; 'alternative facts'; the President admitting his policies will damage the people who elected him by saying, 'I know'; more Russians in the woodwork that raisins in Raisin Flakes; a Time Magazine cover story "Is Truth Dead?" (echoing the 1966 cover "Is God Dead?"); all this and so, so much more.

I feel like I'm waiting for Godot and repeating over and over Lucky's line, "but time will tell...."

Up is Sideways and Down is a circle.

I've never lived in times like these.

I keep thinking, 'time will tell....' And keep wondering what time will tell.

And waiting for Godot, who will never come (if I understand the play correctly).

Ah well, as the Chinese say, "may you live in interesting times."

That's the same Chinese who invented a hokes called 'climate change' by the way.

"Interesting times" and "time will tell...." So it goes.

God help us.

Godot is on his way....
