When the hurly-burly’s done,


“When the battle’s lost and won.
We’ll meet when the noise of the battle is over,
when one side has won and the other side has lost…”

Thankfully the high drama surrounding the nomination and appointment of Brett Kavanaugh might not sport all the trappings of Macbeth, but it came close.  Figuratively, blood was spilled, but alliances were actually tested and broken, honor stained, and a troublesome future assured. Now the long process of healing a divided nation must resume… or at least begin. Hopefully, the citizens of the Republic will be up to the task.
