38. That's really big of you!

Look, the thing is we've all felt like a proverbial Charlie Brown with Lucy and the football before.

This one is bigger than anything previous and truly a fight for our democracy. Of course our tensions are going to be escalating. We've all been through some serious crap no one ever could have imagined happening the way it did. Yet it did, and easily could again, as we now know. I'm hopeful our AG is going to also recognize the code red level we're on and make it obvious a second coup attempt will not be tolerated. This is new territory, toxic territory of new levels never seen before.

We all needed some good news to either assuage our concerns or at least make us shake our shoulders out a touch. We all needed a moment to breathe.
