Just recently, I read a short article that explained how some individuals, irritated by their employer, discovered that abusing a virtual voodoo doll of their boss made them feel better without them getting fired. This earned them a 2018 “IG Noble,” the prize sponsored each year by the science humor magazine Annals of Improbable Research. The prizes were distributed by real Nobel laureates at Harvard University.
I have actually discovered my own version of the voodoo doll. I had actually developed an ulcer since President Donald Trump was elected, and the final straw came throughout the July press conference given by Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, when Trump trashed the U.S. intelligence community while praising Putin.
The next day, I began wearing a sign that read “Trump Is A Traitor.” I have not had to take an antacid considering that. My discomfort was reduced by the positive responses from people who agree with me in the grocery store, the bank, my physician’s office or on the street.
I tell them to elect Democrats in November, but I still stress that Republican citizen suppression and gerrymandering will take another election.
