Before the curtain falls on Act 1 of the political drama through which we are still passing, can we possibly hope for Act 11, in which there may be some decency afforded by the producers, the actors, the audiences?

Must we continue to be flooded with obscenities, poorly written scripts, incompetent performers, little applause for exceptional productions? Can there not be a few critics to emerge with accolades for what we are offered coming from the stages on which these actors (politicians) perform?

Is it too much to ask that decency prevail? Is it too much to expect that ideals prevail over threats and fear tactics? Is it too much to expect that statesman (woman)-like characters may emerge worthy of an Oscar or better a Medal of Honor?
