Because no one is an island, because this is a contentious political year, because a rising tide lifts all ships (but a furious flood destroys everything in its path), and, most of all, because we all need a laugh.  Watch this space for political cartoons and satire.

No man is an island,
Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thy friend’s
Or of thine own were:
Any man’s death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind,
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.
