Kickass and cataracts

Kickass, the doorstop dog, joins the keeper in celebrating the now commonplace cataract surgery as both his wife Phyllis and son Mike undergo the procedure.

The keeper remembers an elderly relative undergoing an earlier version of cataract treatment that involved a much less effective approach and a lengthy recovery time.

Considering the way everything gets politicized these days, the keeper wonders how it is that the MAGA Republicans are not opposing cataract operations on the grounds that they make it much easier for people to see things clearly, like the truth, for example.

Do not be surprised if cataract operations are outlawed in Texas, the keeper warns, as they are increasingly successful in Wisconsin where Phyllis and Mike are among those celebrating a new political view with clearer lenses.
