11 Months From Today


A second term for Trump seems more possible than ever. But what would it look like? NY Magazine knows. And it’s not pretty.

This will be a very short edition of Around the Block as I’ll let New York Magazine do the most of the talking; for the most part, the article’s pictures will tell my story. (Believe me, it’s the pictures not the words that, in some formats, make this post two pages.)

  1. Ted……I made a mistake…..I finished my breakfast before reading this commentary and I have a lot of cleaning to do now…….really difficult to digest anything after imagining not only what the next 4 years might be like…..but then the image of Don JR. Following in his father’s footsteps…….!!! Ugh!


    1. Democrats sure seem like their contributing to the perpetuation of this horror show. Now some pundits are suggesting the Dem disarray will result not just in a “brokered” convention, but a bloodbath. Waaaaay to go!
