Though I still love Muse Belle and Muse Lara, I will use Muse Rena as my guide to the End of the World, and, the end of my life. She is so utterly provincial. She is The Female Spirit of America. She told Sherriff Dan that she did not want to interfere with my newspaper. She stood by her Cowboy Man who is going to be crushed by the Trump Tariffs. I believe she is sane enough, good enough, and smart enough to realize she made a huge mistake – and I am right!
In her letter she tells me how afraid she has been most of her life. It is she who comes through the ruined portal at the fountain in Algiers. Gone again, is her beautiful face, that lauched a thousand ships. There is no story to tell, but her’s. There will be no creative writing on my part. Just pure reporting. The Death of Beauty, is on hand. My belved muse looks over my shoulder, and says;
“You better get it right, or I will leave you! Don’t let King Bobo destroy the Great American Icon. Save the Cattleman, John!”

“Businessmen abhor uncertainty,” said Max Baucus, who served more than 35 years as U.S. Senator for Montana and nearly three years as U.S. Ambassador to China. “They want to know what the rules are; and when the rules keep changing, it just causes that much more uncertainty for them. It makes it hard for them to make a decision.”
“I came out pretty strongly against the broad-based tariffs that were threatened initially by (President) Trump,” observed Greg Gianforte, founder of RightNow Technologies and Montana’s Republican Congressional Representative. “Although I tend to be a big supporter of Donald Trump I don’t think broad-based tariffs work.”
One of Donald Trump’s top economic advisers has acknowledged the president was wrong to suggest that China would pay tariffs on its exports to the US.
Larry Kudlow, who heads the National Economic Council, accepted it was US businesses that paid the import tax.
He told Fox News that he believed “both sides will suffer” from the escalating trade dispute.
On Friday Mr Trump tweeted that tariffs on $250bn of goods coming into the US were being paid “by China”.
The president argued there was “no need to rush” into a trade agreement with China, as the US Treasury was benefiting from these “massive payments”.
On this, our weddin’ day
Do not forsake me, oh, my darlin’
Wait, wait along
I only know I must be brave
And I must face a man who hates me
Or lie a coward, a craven coward
Or lie a coward in my grave
Supposin’ I lose my fair-haired beauty
Look at that big hand move along
Nearin’ high noon
Vowed it would be my life or his, and
I’m not afraid of death, but, oh
What shall I do if you leave me?
