A Day of Mourning........

We used to be a nation that expected a free press to question our leaders.

We used to be a nation where presidential candidates of both parties released tax returns to assure the public they had no conflicts of interest.

We used to be a nation where presidents put their financial affairs in a blind trust, or in Jimmy Carter's case, sold their peanut farm because Americans understood how dangerous financial conflicts for a president could be.

We used to be a nation where marital infidelity and multiple wives would have been the end of a campaign, especially for the party of "family values."

We used to be a nation where bragging about groping women was wrong.

And as of today, we aren't.
