One of my work friends came to give me a hug as if I needed her consolation. I told her not to touch me and then I thanked her for the tax increase. She replied that the majority of Americans agreed with her. I told her to pass my thanks on to them as well, but if I wanted to give my hard earned money to stupid lazy people I would have done so on my own a long time ago. There’s post election celebration food on the back counter. For me, eating that would be like eating food sacrificed to a pagan god. I’ve turned the office copy of the LA Times upside down.
