The White House fires its chief usher! Angella Reid, the first woman and second African American to hold the position.. No real reason given as to why. But some history, as exemplified in the final paragraph of the Washington POST story: In 2014, the usher’s office — then under Reid — found itself embroiled in a controversy after a fence-jumper, who was carrying a knife, made it well inside the executive mansion. At the time, the Security Service said that an alarm box near the White House’s front entrance intended to alert its agents to intruders had been muted at the request of the usher’s office, which felt it was too noisy and frequently malfunctioning.

Life imitating reality.. reality imitating life. Either way, some times things just happen that make you think a cosmic player is having fun.. that God is setting up coincidences to make us just laugh . Or Cry. When Donald Trump announced his military strike on Syria the other night, he was on Air Force One.

The internet, quick to make memes, really did not have to, this time. The memes were made for them… the strange oddity of a real war along with the Empire striking in ROGUE ONE cannot be underplayed. Life itself is just plain weird.
