Titania McGrath is a satire account, and usually right on target.

There were no further steps on the list.

Macron's forcing through of his hated increase in France's retirement age continues to bear fruit, apparently.

Some really good ones, but I especially love the very last one. I actually feel my Mother was the only one who truly loved me deeply and unconditionally…besides my pet doggies.

Wow, these sure gave everyone something to think about. The thing is, they are so true.

Mary: I felt that way too. And always remember, while an animal may love you sincerely, it's only capable of knowing you on a rather limited level. In most cases your mother knows you better that anyone else does.

Mary K: Thanks! I always hope to make people think.

"Maturity is working through your trauma and not using it as a never ending excuse for poor behaviour" Indeed. It's very fashionable right now to trot out some distressing personal experience and expect instant sympathy and suspended judgment.

Nick: Yes, that's the fad these days. Everybody wants to be special, and at the current moment, the way to be special is to be more oppressed and downtrodden than the next guy. Lots of people -- maybe most -- do have genuine trauma, of course, but it can't be treated as a permanent exemption from the obligation to refrain from traumatizing other people.

Spirilis: No doubt the true oligarchs will soon insist that the peons (or pee-ons, in this case) carry them up the ladder.
