Meanwhile we have had a minor earthquake on the other side of the bay.



The political climate here has apparently turned liberals into virulent hot heads.
As some of you suspect I am the real life Larry David who says the wrong thing at the right time. Over the last decade I have identified with our English cousins here to the point I think in terms of a UK perspective in everything from driving on the LEFT to feeling exasperated with Brexit voters.

So I am in the Christmas decorated Mall walking into Pennys when a cute couple are walking out blocking me from entering on the right. I go to the 'extreme right' against the 'wall' to enter.
But I had to open my mouth. Avoiding a collision I said "I'm an American, I even walk on the right". The couple's smiles turned downward and three seconds later from behind me they both yelled " FUCK YOU ". I figured out why they thought I was a Trump Nazi type, but felt good about their leftist gumption. My wife however was appalled and the incident further strengthened her opinion that I am a closet right wing bigot.
