Message to Sen. Dean Heller
Only once have I had the opportunity to hear and see you in person. It was at a town hall you held with Rep. Amodei last year at the Convention Center in Reno. What I remember best is your unflappable smile in the face of a noisy crowd bent on opposition. I have noticed in TV coverage that you almost always wear a smile. Meanwhile you serve an autocratic president who is manifestly hostile to democracy and indifferent to the greater good. And therefore, “Meet it is I set it down,” as Hamlet said, “that one may smile, and smile, and be a villain.”
I and so many others are watching to see if you change course before the next election. The tax vote would have been a good place to start.
Scatter my ashes to the wind.
Let me dust myself on mountain tops
And verdant meadows down below
Let me ride the rushing river
‘Til I find a quiet pool where I can rest.
I will be home again, a part of nature,
A part of the universe once more
Gene J. Giudice
