There has been so much attention driven by D. Trump to immigration that I turned to the words of Wadsworth congressman Jim Renacci, a Republican and right-wing surrogate of the president. He assures us in each breath that he wants to cut taxes. And who can blame a man of his wealth who would benefit so mightily from the proposed cuts? Anyway, here’s what he had to say about refugees and such:

“While I strongly encourage the Administration to examine more closely whether it is effectual and necessary to subject green card holders from these nations to this temporary order, I fully support our government’s renewed commitment to keeping Americans of all faiths safe and free across our homeland.”

Got that? I didn’t. As a graduate of an Air Force cryptography school long ago (honest!), I think it did sound as though he had encoded “a cow jumped over the moon “ and made a safe landing when it returned to earth.
