Re: Will tonight confirm that the Trump victory can only happen in La la Land?

Tom Brady and the Patriots came back from nowhere to snatch away an almost certain victory from the Atlanta Falcons in the last Super Bowl. My senses warned me that there was yet another major surprise coming down the pike. First there was Trump's impossible victory, and then Brady's. They come in 3's, don't they?

That's why my heart sank last night when Warren Beatty announced that LA LA LAND was the winner of the best picture award. Here was finally the next unbelievable surprise #3!! But how could that possibly be?

Unlike Satan in John Milton's epic poem PARADISE LOST, I could find no comfort in saying "What though the field be lost, All is not Lost." What was there left to hope for? The world had indeed turned into a La La Land as I feared it just might have done. It seemed that I had no choice but to adjust myself to this new reality in American life.

And then came the correction that MOONLIGHT was the winner. Oh what a relief it was!!!!
Here was the incredible hope coming to life that Satan's statement wanted us to believe in. All indeed was not lost!!
There was no bickering nor petty in-fighting, because an honest mistake was made, corrected and accepted.

Can you possibly imagine what would have happened had there been a similar correction in the last presidential election!!!!
