Here are Melanie’s Share Your World questions for this week.
Are justice and the law necessarily the same thing?
This must be one of Melanie’s silly questions. If justice and the law were the same, then Donald Trump, his three adult children, Bill Barr, Rudy Giuliani, Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, and a whole host of other Trump enablers and sycophants who have promoted Trump’s The Big Lie would be behind bars.
Which kitchen appliance do you use every day?
My grind and brew coffee maker, of course.
What is one thing you’ll never do again?
Probably fly. When I was working, I flew nearly three million miles for my job — and no, I wasn’t a pilot or a flight attendant. I haven’t set foot in a plane since I retired at the end of 2016, and as far as I’m concerned, if I never have to fly again, it will be too soon.
What event escalated very quickly?
The Donald Trump inspired January 6th insurrection attempt on the Capitol Building. I expected there to be protests from the MAGA mob, but I never expected the bloodthirsty violence and the attempt to lay siege to the seat of our country’s government.
