Christmas 2017

I am sad for the state of our country. We have lost our way. Our President is largely responsible. He constantly works to divide us as a people, to denigrate truths that don't suit him, and people who criticize him. He is inept and ineffective at governing but capable of bombast that some core piece of America finds tantalizing. How he won the majority of electoral votes will go down in history as an incredible and unfortunate series of circumstances that hopefully is impossible to replicate. To paraphrase political commentator Ezra Klein from Vox this morning, historians in future years will view the tapes and say "How could reasonable people have let this happen".
