In a Frustrated Funk

Sad. Disappointing. The Angry Poodle failed this week — presenting us with a bland column about Donald Trump and the Pope. And worse, the Poodle had to use gratuitous profanity — twice — in a column in a newspaper that my family reads.

I object to profanity being printed in the paper. Everyone knows it exists. Just try to have some class. I have seen the word starting with “f” more than once in your paper, and each time it reminds me that a weak minded individual used it to get attention. Please stop. It’s not cool.

Also, you might want to give it some time — Trump may surprise us all.
