There was a cartoon character when I was a kid called Snagglepuss. A pink lion who was known to say, “Exit, stage left!” when he got in trouble and wanted to make a quick getaway. He would also exclaim, “Heavens to Murgatroyd!” in exasperation. I feel like saying it now when I read about all the crazy stuff in the news about a certain Presidential candidate and how Russia and Wikileaks may be trying to interfere in our elections. It is so scary but I have faith that the US and her people will be all right in the end. But I would like to tell those who want to poke their noses in our business, please get lost, scram, and exit stage left or stage right,even.
