President Donald Trump? How?

As I write this, the sun is shining, the temperature is a sublime 61 degrees Fahrenheit, and my stomach is growling; essentially a typical Texas day. Like many of you reading this, I was up quite late watching Donald Trump pull an astonishing upset of former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, for president. I awoke to the following headline:…

Well…. Now what?

The dust is settled, the votes are in. There’s no Hanging Chads, no recounts to be demanded.
