Letter: The man on the moon

I had a dream. I was standing in a crowd of people, facing the U.S. Capitol on a crisp snowy Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2017, watching as Chief Justice John Roberts swears in President-elect Donald Trump. At the conclusion of the oath of office, President Trump grasps the lower left side of his face with his right hand and peels off a Trump mask to reveal that he is in reality, late comedian Andy Kaufman.

Andy did indeed fake his death in 1984, as was rumored. But instead of returning in 20 years as he promised, he chose to wait for 32. Pure comic genius. He really pushed the envelope. After the initial shock wore off, I breathed a huge sigh of relief that Donald Trump wasn’t president and that an equally qualified Andy Kaufman was.

Then I woke up and realized Andy was still dead and Donald was still the Republican candidate for president.

Life isn’t fair.
