Opinion
Brick and Mortar..!
By Robert Clements
Over a half century and a little more ago, somewhere in Brooklyn, a little boy looked up at his dad and grinned, "Liked your speech dad!" he said, "Liked how you talked about brick and mortar!"

"Dem be the only things I know about son! And brick and mortar will also be the only thing you'll know about one day sonny!"

"But dad you talked 'bout love and marriage, and all them strange things today?"

"Everything to do with brick and mortar sonny. That's sometin' you need to learn in life; always talk 'bout what you know! They asked me to talk about love today, so I talked brick and mortar marriage foundation. People ask you 'bout gun control, you speak on shelter and safety! It's the same thing!"

"Gee dad thanks!"

"We're builders son, we talk only what we know well! Right?"

"Right dad!" said the blonde- haired boy with the beginnings of a strange hair style as he pranced away.

Sixty years later a later a pretty Slovenian wife smiled seductively at her husband as he straightened his tie, "And what you gonna speak on Donny boy? There's not much you know 'bout except putting up buildings all over the world?"

"That's what I'm gonna speak on!" said the seventy year old, with the strange blonde hair style. "On buildings!"

"You can't do that!" cried his wife, "You can't speak to the 'Merican people about construction! They want something different Donny. You got to give them somethin' like world peace, nuclear disarmament, something big for dem to chew on!"

"Papa said, always speak on what you know; I know brick and mortar!"

"You goin to speak 'bout skyscrapers! How high you will build them?"

"This is not about my business honey, this is 'bout America! I need to kick start a brick and mortar activity!"

"Yes!" shouted his pretty wife, "You should make all de 'Merican people, especially all of dem who laugh at me into construction workers! Teach them a lesson! What fun, I'll watch all of them building something all the four years you are president!"

"Walls!" shouted the President as he tweeted on his phone, "Not just a wall twixt us and Mexico, but walls we'll keep building to shut us from the rest of the world, then walls that all de 'Merican people can build between each other!"

"Yay!" screamed his lovely Slovenian wife, "What a wise man your dad was Donny! Using brick and mortar is what the people will learn from you..!"
