An open letter to Republican Senators of the United States

Dear Republican Senators,
Well, congratulations boys-and precious few ladies.  You got Trump's guy in.  In spite of very compelling testimony by Dr. Ford and some rather troubling veiled threats and angry outbursts by Mr. Kavanaugh you've chosen to confirm.  I hope you, and more importantly, the nation can live with it.

Remember, this man along with the rest of the court is going to be making some very important decisions that will affect women directly.  How do you think that's going to go?

I sincerely hope that those of you who have daughters don't ever experience that moment when she returns home some night and tearfully reports having been abused.  Are you going to tell her to suck it up and deal with it? Boys will be boys.  And if for some odd reason a case of this nature makes it to the Supreme Court, well, now you know how that's going to go, don't you.

Let's hope that never happens.

One more thing: Just a reminder-it's OK to embrace the conservative agenda but firmly reject Trumpism.  The Make America Hate Again mantra doesn't have to be yours.  Do you think you can do that?  Me neither.

Oh, well. Onward we go.  Dr. Ford's experience is not to be in vain.  I think she's poured fuel on the flames of change.  We'll know more in November, won't we?

That's it for now.

etc. etc. etc.
