The best laid plans of mice and men …
Wow, who would have though and coming from the LEFT, Fire Dog Lake says, “Worst. Inauguration. Ever.” Is it possible that “The Chosen One” could do wrong?

And then they just started begging and shouting. Let us in. We have tickets. We’ve been here for hours. Let us in.
And then it was noon. And everything stopped
