TRUMPERY

Dear Editor,
Sandy Thorne seems to think Donald Trump can restore America to prosperity and its past greatness (Letters, October 2016). All great nations rise, decline, and fall. If Caligula can put his horse Incitatus forward as a Senator, I suppose it’s possible that the American people just might vote in Donald Trump as president. As Bob Dylan sang ‘The answer is blowin’ in the wind’. Which brings us to one of the definitions of ‘Trump’ in the Oxford dictionary, ‘To break wind audibly’.
