Fio is so angry that if she were Godzilla, she would have destroyed the world by now. First of all, she has fallen victim to the latest con game in the technological gang's repertoire--bait and switch. She bought a printer at Office Depot some years ago assuming that the store would always stock toner cartridge refills, but it's discontinued them in favor oif trendier delights. The child salesman told her she'll have to order toners on line, and they'd come in about a week. Not what you want to say to an author who needs to run out the first half of her book NOW.
Then there's her INR nurse, the one who checks Fiorella blood every month. Marie, whom Fio really likes, has recently completed her RN training and graadutaed, but the cheapskate doctors she works for won't raise her pay so she's moving on. Fio isn't surprised--it's a yearly turnover--but she is angry.
Both of these angers are painted on the background of the national scene. Fiorella is frantic about what is going on at the border. And about Trump cutting programs for children and the elderly to fund a Flash Gordon space patrol program. And about the Russian invasion. And about schoolchildren being killed in their classrooms. And about the blatant lying and stealing and corruption in government. And about the embarrassing Singapore thing. And about people who ignore what is happening because they don't want to think about these things.
WE MUST GET OUT OF THIS MESS! TRUMP IS PUSHING US BACK INTO THE DARK AGES!
