Murphy’s Law

Raoul’s 2 Cents

Friendly Enemies

I broke the Golden Rule … I talked politics with a friend whom I knew disagreed with my worldview and it didn’t turn out so well. I sensed a dark cloud hovering above my head because I felt bad that I made my friend feel bad..

What I thought was obvious empirical evidence meant nothing to my friend. I’m sure the feeling was mutual. Was this the end of our friendship? I hope not. Could two opposites continue to be friends? I hope so. Should we just avoid talking politics? It seems that way. How sad.

The “Notorious RBG” (Ruth Bayder Ginsberg) passed away a week ago. I knew little about her other than she was a steadfast liberal. Until recently I never knew she was best friends with her fellow Supreme Court justice, Antonin Scalia, who was a hard core conservative. They genuinely enjoyed each other’s company. They went on family trips together, joked with each other, etc. We need more of them in this deeply divided America, this delightful, dichotomous duo is my inspiration of the week.

Be safe, be healthy and remember: One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood. TGIF people!
