Election Results, 2016

I generally try to avoid politics here, but it given the gravity and global impact of yesterday’s election, it would be a noticeable omission┬áto say nothing about the election results.

I’m still processing this, and like many people (on both sides I imagine), I’m pretty stunned. I think it will be a few days, or a week even before we start to see how things shake out, and how the reaction is absorbed by the country as a whole. There will be initial jolts, pendulum swings, but I expect they’ll be moderated over the course of the next several days. In the meantime, John Scalzi has written up some early thoughts that I think are worth reading.
