President Trump wants to "Make America Great Again."

Infected with a possibly deadly virus, he tells us not to let Covid-19 "dominate" us, even though we have lost more than 210,000 souls in half a year.

Back at the White House from Walter Reed Medical Center Monday night, our contaminated leader removes his mask for the world to see.

Clearly, reality is not Trump's thing. He is a real estate guy from New York City, who makes money putting his name on stuff. Pitchman, con man, grifter, Trump bullied his way through the first presidential debate with Joe Biden, the former vice president.

Trump, though, is a gaudy but menacing ornament, a blinking neon sign pointing out more serious problems in society.

That's where Bruce Sudano, a singer/songwriter, takes the stage. His song, "American Sunset," is a stark recitation of contemporary woes.

Yes we have a failed leader, and a floundering government. But so much more is happening, and being ignored at our peril.

Sudano explains his song this way in a press release: "I wrote American Sunset out of concern for the direction of my country and as a warning. Fearing that if we don't change our ways we will continue to sink as a nation already evidencing the early stages of decline. The reasons for this? Self assuredness, flagrant pride and conceit, unbridled selfishness, deceit, denial, the obliteration of truth, the already overwhelming and growing inequality which in itself is a certain road to revolution. All of this fueled by a government configured to protect and enrich those in power. In doing so we have abandoned the principles that made America great and have allowed rampant greed in the name of capitalism to become our god. Thus, we are headed for sunset, unless we can change our course, it's not too late! Such heavy matters for a little folk song".

Fortunately, the artist and dreamer in him gives us a way forward. Sudano suggests that we "get back to the beauty of the elegant design."

What exactly is the beauty of the elegant design?
