• Mowed the lawn today. First time in several months. It’s been so dry this year in Seattle.

    On providing a whitelist of acceptable phone numbers, so other calls don’t ring (or buzz) and go straight to voicemail.

  • Maybe the best day of my life?

  • Some bar in Seattle in 2013.

This is what liberals have been saying for decades. I never believed them. Now I do, because Trump won by making the racist appeal, hitherto relatively subtle, obvious even to someone such as me who used to be in denial.
