It has been almost a week and I am still not prepared for President Trump. I was sure that Hillary Clinton had it in the bag. I had convinced myself that Donald Trump’s arresting, but toxic, message, his misogyny and rage against the “other”, together with his general lack of discipline, organization or depth would do him in.

Notes from Indian Country By Tim Giago (Nanwica Kciji – Stands Up For Them) In what seemed like a virtual nightmare a misogynist bigot was elected as the President of the United States. Of course he is called the “President-Elect” until he is sworn in, but the ceremony itself is just a formality

I wrote the following this morning and now comes word tonight that Leonard Cohen, one of the greatest writers of our time (poet, novelist, songwriter) has died at the age of 82. “Give me back the Berlin Wall.” Of course, Leonard Cohen, who at the age of 82 has just released one of his greatest and most popular albums, You Want It Darker , didn’t really mean that, a quarter-century ago. He sang in the guise of the unreliable narrator in his classic, and scary, song “The Future.” Other Cohen lyrics from that little ditty, written just after the 1989 fall of the Wall, call for the return of Stalin, more people to torture, and another Hiroshima, among other horrors.
