The People Have Spoken: Life is Kinder (and Better Looking) at the Purple End of the Spectrum
SARATOGA SPRINGS – So, our elected officials decided to abandon their posts and shut the Federal Government down last week. I was ready, made my move and appointed myself Emperor, in order to make some long-overdue changes…
My first decree was that the red, white and blue shall have a new color added: And that would be Purple. The Emperor has decided that the calming glow of Violet shall make our people less violent – more trusting, more inclined to help thy neighbor, more caring.
My first test of this principle was at The National Museum of Dance on Saturday, January 20, at the appropriately-named “A Purple Tie Affair,” now in it’s fourth year. Billed as ‘A Celebration of Life,’ the Honored Guests were Bella Caruso and Evan Fronk, both six years-old and well on their way to living happy lives – distinguished by the fact that they are now normal children – free to play with Legos, eat ice cream, ride bikes, etc.. But what is extraordinary is that both have overcome Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia through the miracle of modern medical treatment and your support of not-for-profit organizations like the Leukemia + Lymphoma Society and Nick’s Fight to be Healed Foundation for pediatric cancer.
And it came to pass that the purple population rejoiced and celebrated Bella and Evan’s success. They boogied to The Accents, ate, drank and made merry. The Emperor was pleased with what he saw indeed…
The Emperor declared that Purp-u-lism shall prevail amongst the people going forward, before resuming his role as mild-mannered reporter.
