....someone wants to so honor me--which I do not expect--I do hope that I'll plead with them not to do so until I'm safely dead and buried.  Maybe Trump did.

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.

It's interesting to me that all through the 2016 campaign I had family and friends who were Trump supporters (not talking about voters who grudgingly chose him over Hillary, btw) who argued for him on the basis of a Trump/Cyrus comparison. Their reasoning was something like, "God used wicked Cyrus, he can use Trump." 

I assume the 70 years on that coin refers to 1948-2018, as though the "exile" of the American embassy to Tel Aviv was somehow comparable to 70 years in Babylon and Persia as a result of divine judgment. Come to think of it, that sounds like a lot of the so-called exegesis I've seen coming from the Trump camp on social media.
