Evening in America

By -

I am going to do something that I’ve never done before in the history of this blog which is to dictate this post verbally. The reason simply stated is that my right hand has very bad tendinitis right now, which I’ve never experienced before but being a person who doesn’t like dealing with pain in the first place it’s fairly debilitating for my typing so, I’m resorting to the mouth and the iPhone. It won’t read quite the same as my writing, but I’m doing what I can.

The media is saturated with analysis about the election and where the media went wrong and what this new presidency will mean for America. ¬†One thing I’ve noticed is that some people seem to be creating an analog between the forthcoming Trump presidency and the Reagan presidency from the election of 1980.
