At Snapper Magee’s yesterday — a local, no frills watering hole in Kingston where some customers are headed toward drunk at 3 o’clock in the afternoon — and things almost went south as opinions clashed over Trump’s impeachment. But before that happened, the conversation got reined in and each of us resumed what we were doing previously. Me listening to the juke box and dialing while drinking. That habit, I guess, I picked up from my father who was a notorious drunk dialer.

By the way, only one of Snapper’s patrons, as far as I could tell, supported Trump.
