I believe, and I hope I am wrong, France is the next peg to fall.   
  
Brexit 
Trump 
Marie Le Pen becomes president of France.  My friends over where are   
scared shitless.

Dear  Listers, 
 
My partner Lynne Price and I called the Met earlier today and  asked if we  
could exchange  
our subscription tickets to « Roméo et Juliette  » from Monday, January 10  
in the evening to  
the matinée of Saturday, July  21. 
 
After initially hesitating and answering that such an exchange  could only  
be done by mail  
and without any guarantees, the CSR (customer  sales representative) clerk  
consulted with a  
supervisor and came back on  saying it would not be a problem at all, and  
that her  
supervisor had  instructed her to perform the exchange right then and there  
on the  phone.   
The matinée tickets are actually $31 more expensive than the  Tuesday  
evening tickets, so  
why would the Met possibly object to making  the exchange? 
 
The CSR also asked me why I would wish to exchange our  tickets for tickets  
that are $31  
more expensive, and I answered that WE  LIVE IN WASHINGTON, D.C., AND  
CANNOT BEAR  
THE THOUGHT OF BEING IN TOWN  WHILE THE ANTICHRIST, HIS BOTOXED AND  
SILICONED WHORE, AND THEIR BARBARIC  HORDE OF DEPLORABLES INVADE OUR  
BELOVED CITY, so we thought that  exchanging our Met tickets for the  
weekend of Jan. 19- 
21 would allow us to  escape this repulsive exhibition. 
 
The CSR laughed so hard that she  practically fell out of her chair, and  
when she had  
recovered her  composure, she said she was very happy that the Met was able  
to offer us   
this escape route, and hoped that we would have a very enjoyable weekend   
in New York.   
Just avoid Fifth Avenue, she said, because the entire  block facing the  
Monster’s skyscraper  
residence had been cordoned off and  that traffic on the East Side was  
hopelessly tangled.   
So no shopping  at Tiffany’s, Bulgari or Gucci for us, I’m afraid.  ;) ;)  
;) 
 
By  the way, I thought that Bob Rideout’s comments on the election a couple  
of  days ago  
were SPOT ON and I agree with every word he said.  So  there. 
 
Cheers and best regards, 
 
Alain
