Level 1 = hate the player. Level 2 = hate the game. Level 3 = learn to play. I strive for Level 5.

Yesterday, #donaldtrump 's  "entire mode of public discourse congealed into an unusable mass of verbal putty" that effectively ended his leadership.

I read the article to which this one refers, and it did indeed spook me. And I don't even have kids. Personal takeaway: when reading such a piece, read an opposing piece before drawing conclusions. Or better yet, don't read anything at this level that does not directly relate to my intentions for my life. While vitally important for some people, for me this is distraction.

Working towards a fair answer to a common question. It's complicated.

My question is not, "What does "#covfefe mean"? (I think it's obvious) My question is, "Why did he send that tweet?"

It has taken me nearly a week to work out my thoughts/feelings about the conclusion.

On the one hand, it seemed inevitable that both Norman and Alex Romero would die.

And Dylan had to play some role, rather than just fade out.

So I think the ending makes perfect sense structurally.

But somehow it seemed slightly off, and at first I wasn't sure why.

Then I realized - Norman's last line, for me, diminished the scene.

When he says, "Thank you," to Dylan, that seems to change his fight with Dylan into a fake fight, a disguised attempt at suicide-by-brother, made more obvious by the fact that he didn't even come close to hitting him with the knife. Did he AIM high and to the right? You don't go after someone's head with a knife, you go after their chest or gut. And Norman certainly knew how to knife someone.

The ending suggests that reunion with Norma in death had been Norman's greatest desire ever since the attempted murder-suicide. If so, I think we should have seen at least one more failed suicide attempt along the way.

For me, the scene would have worked better if Norman, caught up in visions of reunion with Norma, had simply joyously said, "Mother!"

What do you think?
