Old Time Religion
I stayed up too late last night watching the DNC. Why do they do it so late? I saw all the major speeches. . . and I says to myself, I says. . . "Who in the hell is watching this?"
Nobody under forty, certainly. Maybe fifty.
This morning I read that during the convention, Trump was tweeting.
Last night was a darn good, old fashioned show. It would have been very, very effective in the '70s. I will tell you that I was moved. I could feel the righteousness coursing through my veins. I had that old time religion.
This morning, I looked at CNN and the NYT online. They barely mentioned the convention and didn't give much praise to the speeches. There was a lot about Putin and Trump. With a few tweets. . . .
I am sick today with a sore throat and I am tired and I know that I am old. Watching the convention last night did that to me. Only an old person would stay up to listen to speeches, right? Yea, I'm going to vote more times than a kid, but still. . . they'd better adjust their presentation. Old songs by Stevie Wonder just ain't going to cut it.
