The Mex Factor: The next round

This newspaper ran a political cartoon the other day depicting a couple of young men fiddling around with a malfunctioning mechanized figure meant to represent the year 2020. One of them observes, “Darn thing hasn’t worked properly from day one,” while the other adds, “Have you tried unplugging it and plugging it back in again?”

That pretty much sums up 2020 in a nutshell: Regardless of which side of the political aisle you happen to be, everyone is hoping for a hard “reset” so that we can start over.
