Confused? You’re not alone.

       This is Father’s Day. Will Rogers commented on this day at the end of a loving tribute to Mothers on Mother’s Day (on radio) in 1935, “Father had a day, but you can’t find anybody who remembers when it was. It’s been so confused with April the First.”

          Speaking of confusion, half of Americans are convinced that Russia coordinated with the Trump campaign to win the 2016 election. That’s after Robert Mueller spent thirty million taxpayer dollars on a two-year investigation and concluded there was no coordination between Trump and Russia. None. Oh, Russia tried. About 13 times. And, according to Mueller’s report two months ago, the Trump folks turned ‘em down every time.

So why do only 50 percent believe the Trump campaign is “innocent” and the other 50 percent blame Russia for Clinton’s defeat. And a lot of those want Trump impeached and thrown in prison. If you can figure out why half of American voters are fooled, I wish you would write a letter to our big newspapers and television networks and explain it to ‘em.   

Our winter sports wrapped up in the middle of June. It was a peculiar, confusing ending. Our National Basketball championship was won by Canada (the Toronto Raptors). And for the national sport of Canada (Hockey), the Stanley Cup wound up in St. Louis. But this is great news. Those cities won a championship in those sports for the first time.

Historic quote by Will Rogers:

“Some of our big papers have so much in there about the subject till it gets you confused. These fellows [at small newspapers] pick out the main facts and hand it to you in concentrated form, but they get in all the main things.” WA #664 (written ~August 10, 1935; published Sept. 8)
