OK, maybe “the end” is being a little over-dramatic (though this headline: Trump Is Getting the Nuclear Football is pretty nightmare-inspiring). Either way, it’s finally here. The day we’ve been dreading since at least November (or maybe longer if you saw the handwriting on the bathroom wall pre-election, but were trying not to think about it). Personally, I know I’ve been living in denial for quite some time (a plan I intend to continue to the extent possible for the next 4 – 8 years, if not longer when President Pence gets sworn in). Not that I wanted this to happen any sooner than it already has, but it seems like it would have been more appropriate to hold the inauguration a week ago – on Friday the 13th. I hope this doesn’t turn out to be as bad as it seems like it’s gonna turn out. Sure makes you miss Dubya though, doesn’t it?
