The Wife Of

Linda Wertheimer just interviewed my aunt. “So, you’re the wife of the retired pastor?”

Ahem, actually I’m also a retired pastor, she said. And that’s why I voted for Hillary, women never get credit.

“Oh,” said Linda, “like I just did.”

44% of the vote in and Clinton leads! Shouts of glee and astonishment at the village inn. A teenager with an Obama pin leaves the tv room, bitterly spouting something about the media and Hillary. He sits in a dark corner, head in hands.
Some of the party faithful have had a few. But, my aunt forgives them because they were Clinton supporters.
