Iíll pick it up, itís early and I have the energy.

Read the article today about Trump refusing to read, and this quote in MattisĎs book (written by him or his ghostwriter)

In his book Call Sign Chaos, former Secretary of Defense James Mattis writes, "If you haven't read hundreds of books, you are functionally illiterate, and you will be incompetent, because your personal experiences alone aren't broad enough to sustain you."

Reading is hearing, reading is submitting, reading is giving an author my timeóthe most personal thing I have. Reading is serving.

Our idiot president canít read, he canít serve. Heís disqualified from a job in public service as an elected official.
