This morning Posted on November 10, 2016Leave a comment

This morning, my phone rang just after Mrs. Clinton delivered her magnificent concession speech. Thinking that it was perhaps a friend calling to talk about the election, I answered. I was greeted with a wheedling male voice I didn’t recognize apologizing for calling the day after the election, but extolling the success of Trump as something “exciting and new there in Washington!” It turned out to be a handyman looking for work. I hung up on him.
I wish now that I hadn’t. I wish that I’d told him that there was certainly nothing “new” about sexism and racism, and that I’d hardly call the four-year dark age we’re about to enter “exciting”.
