it ain't over yet

Today is the 3rd day of the 48th week, the 24th day of the 11th month, the 329th day of 2020 [with only 30 shopping days left until Christmas], and: 
  • Brownielocks Day – date chosen because that was when the domain name was purchased
  • Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day – I would if I had one.  When I was younger, I could cross all my toes, but I do not know if that was an unique talent or just one that was seldom brought up in conversation, although a doctor commented on it once when testing my reflexes for I did it when commanded to “wiggle your toes”.  Nowadays, those digits are less flexible.
  • DB Cooper Day – 49 years later, his fate is still unknown.  $200K is equivalent to $1,285,866.67 today

It would appear that the US election for President is finally over as, after 20 days, Trump finally instructed his loyal supporter in charge of the GSA to permit the winner to start making formal transition plans,  He did so without conceding, still claiming victory and still throwing doubt on the integrity of the election process.  Apparently his efforts, enabled and abetted by GOP senators, now are concentrated on salting the earth to make it as difficult as possible for his successor to govern effectively.  Much has been written about the damage done to the US democracy by this behavior, on top of the past four years of ignoring all norms of civility and even points of law, so I won’t belabor the obvious. 

At least 71 million [or about 19% of the total population and 30% of the eligible voters]  people are very unhappy and their angst fanned to a fever pitch by such propaganda sites as NewsMax and One America News [Fox News having committed the crime of actually reporting some facts] that woke elites are coming to alter the very fabric of their lives.   For them the pandemic is still a hoax, the election was rigged, and DJT the only person who cares about the common man and understands “the American Way.”


 I thought I would be relieved when the election was over, but instead I am deeply anxious about our ability to heal the divide.  What kind of country will my granddaughters grow up in?
