Watch & Listen Play List: October 26-28

This has been a week of revelations.

As in, politicians and their political party revealing their true nature. Again.

You would think we'd all traveled in a time machine back to circa 2nd Century - 20th Century, with all the ridiculous "news" and "debate" commentary that, women are hysterical, ruled by their wombs and hormones, incapable of making reasoned decisions, so could a benevolent man please show them the way, or take away the ability to make decisions for themselves.

And then the the trump that trumped even the Donald and his hair: God approved assault, and the tacit approval via deafening silence from the man who would be president, and the hoard of all the other gray- faced chumps with two dollar haircuts, who chose to look the other way for the sake of political expediency.

Well, it's enough to make a gal a very cynical and bitter pill.

Instead of staying angry, disappointed, and maybe just a little scared that this kind of talk is actually part of the national discussion (instead of on some loser's Facebook page), that these comments are for the most part tolerated and condoned, despite public outcry, I am going to make some calls, write some letters.

Then, I'm going to put on this play list, click on the noonday collection site and check out artwork by world artisans, mix up my favorite witch's brew of the moment, and cast a spell.

With any luck, by Monday, there will be one hellofa lot of frogs ribbeting without any hope of a princess kissing their warty faces.
