Everything I read made me worry about the future!
I don’t blame Republicans for today’s atrocious vote. I blame the people who knew what the Republican agenda was and still had the wherewithal to muster enough reservations about Hillary Clinton to go out and vote for Trump, Stein, or that dude whose name everyone has already forgotten.
Today was the kind of day where you feel you need to be outside. So I did just that and worked from this desk for a couple hours. I had to do that because I couldn’t get the Wi-Fi to connect from my favorite swing, which I have to use a lot before the bees arrive.
