Just recently I received a call from a so-called opinion research institute. I am asked if I would be willing to give my opinion on how bad everything is. Stunned, I decline the invitation and return to my work.
You are talking about a question. How bad is it?
Let’s see, it’s summer, everything is fine
Okay, in Europe we are dying from the heat, the forests are burning and Ukraine is collapsing.
In our southern neighbors, Republicans place their pawns on the far right of the chessboard.
After we settle the abortion rights case, we will look at contraception and LGBTQ+ rights.
In addition, it is not yet certain that Trump will not be able to run in the 2024 election.
But it’s not that bad, is it?
Everything is going well at home in Quebec
We’re surfing a seventh COVID wave, but don’t bother us, it’s summer!
It smells of flowers, of the countryside.
Especially the election campaign.
In addition, Mr. Legault spends a very sunny summer. The sky is clouding over for Madame Anglade.
Éric Duhaime seems to be experiencing some disturbances…atmospheric? Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, happy to be a father, would almost sing in the rain.
Summer is in full swing with festivals and shows on the Plains.
To top it off: a visit from the Pope! We hadn’t seen that since 1984, what more could you ask for?
In fact, His Holiness would not have asked enough forgiveness, at least not in the right way, and unfortunately not from everyone the Church has offended. It would require several “bus rides”.
The question remains: is it really that bad?
No doubt, but we don’t want to know, we don’t want to see.
Today is July 31st on Earth and all is well. It’s ok because it’s summer.
