    Kamala Harris: Lost in Space

    On the dark side...

    Kamala Harris: Lost in Space

    One of the tortures of our childhood occurred when our mom would drag us along to visit a madwoman we called “Thea” Varvara.

    ...“Thea” Varvara would natter excitedly about fantastic adventures, using many voices, her hands fluttering like frightened birds.

    ...“Thea” Varvara wasn’t our aunt, but a neighbor. She was quite nice and kind, but even we children could see she was obviously quite ill. Her husband, “Uncle” Mike was a union boss who got my father into the waiter’s union, and dad worked as a captain in the Boulevard Room of the Conrad Hilton Hotel. It was my first lesson in what would become The Chicago Way.

    “Uncle” Mike never said much. He had a long knife scar on his face, from his ear, along his throat, under his chin. We never saw him around the house. He drove a large, dark, shiny car and parked it on South Peoria Street, and no one ever leaned on it.

    Varvara did the talking, and my brothers and I knew what would happen if we misbehaved on these old-school visits of obligation. We’d sit quietly in our itchy church clothes, on the edge of the sofa in the front-room, pretending to like the bad candy in the dish.

    And “Thea” Varvara, using many different voices, some purring and cat-like, some wildly excited, would talk and talk. She’d direct most of her comments to the fake cellophane log in the non-working fireplace. We stopped visiting the day she angrily insisted on kissing us on the lips.

    Yes, of course it was awkward, and looking back on it now, it was also sad.

    Kind of like watching Vice President Harris talking to child actors in her political relaunch about the wonders of space....
    Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government's purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.

    The production company's name was actually "Sinking Ship Entertainment."
