After reading your interpretation of current events, I think I will simply agree to disagree. Time will tell who is closer to what is an ever-more elusive "truth." I'll take my chances, however.
As for the board and neutrality, I am tempted to tear a page from Trump and toss out all the rules. But that would look bad to those folks out there "in the dark" (as Norma Desmond called them), wouldn't it? I think that what will happen is that we will back away from this latest upsurge in brinksmanship, retire to neutral corners, slip off the gloves, have our trainer work over our fever blisters, and remind ourselves, like poor hounded John Garfield, that "everybody dies"--even guys named "Donald."
Oops, did I just cross the line again? Ah, well...as Bugs Bunny says when he graphically torments Daffy Duck: "ain't I a stinkah??" :-)
