The Last Week

Screen Shot 2017-01-17 at 8.20.03 AM

I struggle to write anything in these few days before the Trump presidency begins. I’m afraid for the women who will march in Washington, as I safely march in Toronto and as so many others will march in 370 cities around the world. Tyranny must always be resisted, but such resistance always ends in blood. Could this be the fuse that lights Trump’s Reichstag fire? Surely it won’t take much.

Two other writers offer better insight, so here they are. This is an eloquent New Yorker piece by Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche, calling on people to resist. And while he inexplicably fails to mention Trump’s misogyny in his analysis, Jonathan Kirshner’s America, America is chillingly apropos.

I hope we are all very wrong.

  6. Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems
    with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  7. I have been surfing on-line more than 3 hours today, yet I by
    no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It’s beautiful price sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content material as you probably did,
    the internet will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before.

  8. Hello,

    I hope you are well. I have had a colleague pass over your details to me regarding your website in the hope you’d be interested in accepting a great article I am working on?

    Would you be able to let me know what your lowest budgets are to publish content on your blog, please? I write informative articles for websites readers, not just for Google and Include good research.

    I would be linking to Compare the Market and my budget is between £50- £100 GBP.

    Eagerly awaiting for your response

  9. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though
    you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre
    talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could
    be giving us something informative to read?

  10. certainly like your website however you need to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the reality
    nevertheless I’ll certainly come again again.

  11. Greetings! Quick question that’s totally off topic.

    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks
    weird when browsing from my apple iphone. I’m trying
    to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this
    problem. If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Thank you!

  12. I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this
    website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you?
    Plz answer back as I’m looking to construct my own blog and would like to know
    where u got this from. thanks a lot

  13. Hi, I do believe this is a great web site. I stumbledupon it
    😉 I’m going to revisit once again since i have book-marked it.

  17. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a
    thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad
    is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is
    entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  18. Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any tips or suggestions? With thanks

  26. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or
    copyright violation? My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either
    authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from
    being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.

  27. I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your blogs really
    nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your site to come back in the future.
    Many thanks

    They also put forward brokered installment loans up to $2,400, a savings program and access to unconstrained fiscal tools.

  29. Greetings, I believe your web site could be having
    internet browser compatibility problems. Whenever I look at
    your blog in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Apart from that, excellent site!

  30. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you
    wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do
    with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead
    of that, this is excellent blog. An excellent read.
    I’ll definitely be back. pof natalielise
