Nobody asked but …
If your grandfather came up with an explanation for forest fires that defied all logic, how worried would you be? Remember, he is not a forester.
If he claimed that a former governor had an affair with a “flamingo dancer” while covering his tracks with a tale about the “Tallahassee Trail,” would you be concerned?
What if his best buds were John Bolton, Vladimir Putin, Kim Il Un, Rodrigo Duterte, and Joe Arpaio? Would you seek certification?
Suppose he wanted the people of Ohio to like him, but on the very eve insulted arguably the most famous living Buckeye, LeBron James. Makes sense?
How about if he took turns, like a yoyo, condemning then praising everybody else? What does the bird in the clock say?
