1. The Rise (and Fall) of Donald Trump

You can’t turn on the news these days without hearing about Donald Trump.  As I write this, one poll has him favored by 28 percent of Republican voters, far more than the gaggle of other Republican candidates.  Trump’s genius for self-promotion, coupled with his brashness and disregard for anyone else’s opinion, is creating a media firestorm and effectively blocking coverage of the other candidates.  Has anyone heard anything lately about Bobby Jindal, Rick Perry, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, Marco Rubio, George Pataki, or . . . well, the list goes on?  If Donald Trump wins the Republican nomination, he will be the first candidate to win through controversy, confrontation, and sheer bluster.

Very well said, Terry. As the shocking news begins to sink in, all the potential ramifications bubble up. If this were not enough to digest on the day-after, his identified cabinet selections exacerbate each frightening possibility.

Of all the campaign promises Trump has made, none is more fraught with danger then his promise to "cancel" the Paris agreement on climate change.

Down here in New Zealand, there is, as elsewhere, shock at Trump's election. Your thoughtful words are a relief to the harsh rhetoric that has ensued over the past year or so. Vested interests in all societies need a shake up from time to time so that they reflect the public sentiment. Shake them too violently without regard to the public though has serious consequences. Let's hope that can be avoided.

Regards to you and our mutual friend Dan

Thank you for bringing an element of sanity to a completely insane experience.
