She must have done something. Something. Why else would someone in power say that? Americans worship power — trust it. It’s part of our DNA, like nucleotides, chromosomes, or guns.

“Must have.” Isn’t that just a euphemism for “I couldn’t find facts, so it must be true.” What if, she didn’t do anything at all? What if it was just someone in power trying to protect their little piece of inherited land?

Isn’t that why all the unjust things have happened in our power hungry world nation? Protection of what they stole and fear of losing the status quo.

Scott Ryan is a writer living in Ohio.
