Link Love

Scalzi provides a playlist.

A poem, with apologies to William Carlos Williams.

 

Turns out, yes, we are a representative democracy.

    AP finally called it!

    My first reaction was, Finally. Whew. Thank God.

    Then a little bit later… I realized Kamala Harris was also elected. And there OMG. Wow. So many firsts all in one amazing person. There’s that excitement I was expecting four years ago. It really does mean something to see a woman, a person of color, etc. finally get elected to top office. And such a competent person too. That’s exciting! I am … excited. Which is a feeling I haven’t felt since early November 2016. It took me a while to recognize it.

    Next we have to make sure Dems win the runoffs in Georgia. I’m going to donate and I’m going to check postcards to voters for runoff elections.

      Ha! I had the same reaction. I loved her speech–I almost never watch political speeches, even from politicians I like, but it felt important to watch that one. Also, already on Saturday That One Facebook Friend had already posted a thing that said “Oh yeah, but this country is still full of terrible racist people and everything is still bad and if you’re happy about this win (or surprised it wasn’t a bigger win) you aren’t a good ally” and I thought, just give me FIVE MINUTES to be happy about this, even though the world is still a complicated place.
