It’s been a year to the day that Americans went into the polling booth and elected Donald Trump president.

Shortly after the election, I started this blog, which ran every weekday, for two reasons.

On the one hand, I wanted to keep track of Trump’s (and his cronies’) assault on American democracy; and there have been many.

On the other, I needed a space to vent my frustrations at a president, and at an administration that divides instead of unites; that stokes fear instead of hope; that looks and behaves more like the fascist dictatorships of the 1930s than any American administration in history.

With the passing of the this year, I’ve decided to move on from the daily writing of this blog, and focus some of my attention elsewhere.

I’ll still post in this space, though my contributions to the “Not a Normal Day” blog will be less frequent.

You’ll also be able to find my writing on Twitter, and at the Huffington Post, The Conversation, and Policy Options.

I wanted to take this opportunity today to thank you, sincerely, for reading my posts since November of 2016. Thanks for being on this journey with me, and for being part of the movement that I am confident will return honor and integrity to the great American experiment.

It’s Tuesday, the 7th of November, 2017; it hasn’t been a normal year.
