1) Went to bed last night with the news that Doug Jones had won in Alabama, and woke up still very pleased that enough Alabamans went to the polls to make that happen. But even with all that, it was the narrowest of victories. Were it not for Republican encouragement of write-in candidates, something very different might have happened. Fully half of Alabama would rather have sent racist, homophobic Roy Moore to represent them in the Senate. None of us should forget that.
2) In my own life, trying not to fold under the growing realization that I leave for Christmas next week, and no matter where I turn, there is a GREAT deal to do!
3) But Christmas festivities continue tomorrow night as I plan to see Whatever Happened to Baby Jesus? by the celebrated Ryan Landry and the Gold Dust Orphans.
