I have a habit of reading the last few pages of novels, so I won’t waste my time building towards a disappointment. This Election 2020 Novella appears to have just shifted from being a tale of tragedy and horror to one worth having followed. Biden just had a televised ceremony in which he let some of his recent cabinet appointees introduce themselves. The inclusion of John Kerry as “Climate Czar” was especially heartwarming, as were the words of everyone else. I haven’t learned yet what prompted Trump to allow the transition to go forward. Maybe it wasn’t his doing–I’ll find out–but I wanted to acknowledge the resurgence of hope for the United States. I really prefer using the word “America,” but recall that we aren’t the entire continent.
