When did my mother become a conservative? Over the past two days, a smattering of assertions:
“Blacks need to teach their children to respect authority.”
“Immigrants used to learn English.”
“Progressives are too sensitive and they’re eroding free speech.”
It is amazing I have any hair left. Then she took it super personally when I ended the conversation because I didn’t want to have a fight on my last day and told me I always have to be right.
Never have I been happier to be sitting on an Amtrak train on my way home.
