Kickass, the doorstop dog, joined the keeper in investigating the possibilities of becoming a martyr as a means of contributing to a resolution of the current Washington-generated world-ending chaos. There was brief consideration of climbing over the fence and running toward the White House while carrying a live skunk. Some thought was given to showing up at a Trump rally dressed as Jesus and carrying a sign that said, “Jesus Doesn’t Love You and He thinks Trump is a jerk.” Kickass offered to throw the keeper under the (Washington) bus, but there was no room for any more bodies. In the end, it was agreed that being a martyr has too much of a downside and is not that much more effective than ranting as a means of bringing about change. However a crisis looms and that assessment could change.
