126. Compassion is a common trait here, but sometimes it goes into hiding
For many of us, the Reagan years were among the worst of times and the worship the man has been given is grossly misplaced. As a result, tremendous anger comes out, even at somewhat inappropriate times. Some of the more compassionate avoid painful threads like this--knowing what speen will be vented and prefering not to enter in.

My grandmother suffered that long twilight of Alzheimers--I feel for the families that have to endure it and am sorry for their pain and loss. It is a sad and sorrowful ending for good and bad alike.. I'll save my anger for those who continue to hold the reins of power.
