Unfortunately, due to current news, all Facts, Common Sense, Empathy, Human Decency and Hope have fled the country.
Please check back in two years (possibly four) for an update on how the Beginning of the End has impacted our world.
In the meantime, a good book (pure escapism, no dour depressing stories here) and a few cases of wine (and also bourbon) will have to be your soothing balm. Or more precisely, your numbing agent.
Just remember: THIS IS NOT NORMAL.
