Today is a day of regret and reflection for me and many readers of this blog. If you are one of those and are religious, pray. If not, perhaps meditate. If despairing, take consolation in nature, family or friends. Don’t lose faith.

And if you are one of those celebrating, please don’t come whining to me in a couple of years when the Trump administration falls apart like a cheap suit.
