Pardon Me?

Last weekend America was laughing as Saturday Night Live spoofed Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump over her use of a private email server while Clinton was Secretary of State.

In the skit, Trump impersonator Alec Baldwin said that Hillary as being played by Kate McKinnon bumped into him on the way to the third and final debate and politely said, “Pardon me.”

Not missing a beat The Donald replied, “Maybe we should wait until I am in the Oval Office.”

No matter your political persuasion it was hard not to laugh.

This weekend the scandal has turned from joke into serious once again after FBI Director James Comey informed Congress the probe into what he said was a “closed” case was being reopened after discovering new emails.

Those emails are reported to have been found on a laptop jointly used by disgraced former Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner. Weiner is the estranged husband of Clinton confidante Huma Adedin.

The emails were discovered as the FBI investigated charges that Weiner was sexting with a 15-year-old girl.

There only 11 days until America decides whether Clinton or Trump wins the White House. May millions have already voted.

President Barack Obama is on the campaign trail actively seeking to leave his job to Clinton.

The President has also been on a campaign of commuting prison sentences with a high to-date of 872 sentences, the most since the Administration of Woodrow Wilson.

This brings up a question as I sit here in the Cornfield this October evening:

Will the President pardon Clinton to ensure a victory on November 8, rather than allow the FBI continue and his Justice Department indict his chosen successor?

From the Cornfield, something for everyone to mull as people prepare for the Halloween holiday weekend.

Will it be trick or treat for American voters?

I am Mark Ivy, a born and bred Hoosier.
I am father to two wonderful sons, Dave and Kev, of whom I am very proud;
two terrific daughters-in-law, Anna and Hailey; three beautiful granddaughters, Dylan, Alaina and Amelia.

On May 9, 2017, my lung specialist hit me with the news I had maybe six months to live if the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the damage caused by the histoplasmosis described below, ran its normal course. I am now on hospice at home. Content and ready to cross over the river to the other side.

On September 2, 2014, I was diagnosed with disseminated histoplasmosis, a fungal infection, discovered by a biopsy of my larynx.
The infection is fatal if left untreated. For 2 1/2 years I lived under a death sentence being misdiagnosed
with a non-specific bacterial infection which left my right lung a “dried up sponge” and non-functioning.
I was aggressively treated for the infection with antifungals.
The treatment ended October of 2015 and fortunately did not take two years.

I suffer from chronic Horton’s Syndrome. The effects vary widely causing various problems.
Statistically, Horton’s affects only 0.1% of the population. Major depression also attacks me regularly.
