      noun (pl. coups |ko͞oz| )
     1 (also coup d'├ętat)a sudden, violent, and illegal seizure of  power     from a government: he was overthrown in an army coup.

Well, called that correctly.  There's so much to say about events of January 6, 2021.  These say it well:

 From The New York Times:

The American Abyss by Timothy Snyder

A historian of fascism and political atrocity on Trump, the mob and what comes next.

Apology: more computer challenges

Sorry that it's been so long since the last post.  The new laptop came, and, of course, the connecting cords that were needed to transfer data from the old computer to the new weren't among the thousand in the electronic graveyard bin.  Apple, as always, changed the ports.  Once the needed cords arrived,  the transfer was made.  However, the Microsoft Office software that had been used successfully since 2008 finally gave out.  So now we await delivery of the new Microsoft package.

And the transfer lost the access to this editorial site for our blog.  Luckily, it was still alive on the old computer.   Macs are a high maintenance indulgence.
