To say I was floored by the election results last week would be an understatement. Only in the last 24 hours have I truly been able to articulate why I am so devastated by Hillary Clinton’s loss.

It’s been really difficult to watch this election cycle. In all honesty, November 8 can’t get here soon enough. And that’s saying something, given how much of a political junkie I’ve been. Because I’m literally swamped all the time, I get most of my news through Twitter. Which, it seems, is where most of the … Continue reading (image)

September 6 has been a bittersweet day for me for a very long time. My father, about whom I’ve written in the past (like here and here) died on September 6, 1973.
