Glass half full

 Mrs ERJ is our designated optimist.

She was reading The Epoch Times and snorted out-loud. "Well, that is mostly good news" she exclaimed.

"What is that?" I asked.

"The divorce rates are down across America" she replied. "Not something I expected with Covid and enforced isolation.

"What is the bad news?" I asked.

"Murder rates are up."


  1. The old timers here in Alaska used to call that a “Spenard divorce” after a village near Anchorage. It usually could happen at breakup. In the spring when after a long dark winter you got stuck home by mud and soft snow on the roads and trails. I actually heard a sermon by a catholic priest about the phenomenon. Juries apparently were somewhat lenient about such divorces.

  2. One way or the other... Just sayin...
