Dirty birds

    I just read the rantings of the man our president brought into our White House as Director of Communications. I was raised in the Bronx and spent my entire career aboard ships, tugboats, and in various waterfront operations. I'm here to tell you that. the people I associated with, the people purportedly inured to the rough or the salty language of the docks, have always displayed more class and dignity than this foul-mouthed buddy of the equally classless occupant of the White House. They are birds of a feather but with one big difference: Birds are not in the habit of befouling their own nest. By the presence of these two individuals in the White House, they are fouling our nest as well.
