I’ve had several people go out of their way to say that they appreciated my editorial for this issue, so I thought I’d reprint it here…
I write this editorial mere days before the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States. I’m less than excited about the prospect of a president so impetuous and unprepared to take the helm of our nation. Who knows what will happen? Will the Trump presidency rapidly implode from one of the many scandals that seem to follow in his wake? Will he finish off the American nation that is already deeply fragmented and on the verge of collapse? And, of course, there are many other, less dramatic, ways in which this presidency might play out.
