Self-Portrait: In Honor of the People of Portland, Oregon

When I heard that the Trump administration was sending what amounted to a private army to harass peaceful demonstrators in Portland, Oregon, I was aghast. As details emerged about their treatment at the hands of these thugs, most right-thinking Americans were horrified. Tactics employed by these agents of Donald Trump were mindful of a repressive, Third World dictatorship. This mistreatment included being blindfolded with hoods, shackled and thrown into waiting vans, all without identification on the part of these agents, without reading of rights, without charges ever being filed. It’s intimidation. Ham-fisted jack boots unleashed by Trump to crush the neck of a peaceful opposition. It’s a sickening abuse of power.

This photo makes me laugh. That’s my husband in the background.
You can’t see it very clearly, but that’s the entrance to the Smithsonian Institution, Sackler Gallery for Asian Art. I’m wearing an Hawaiian shirt.
