"Our hopes and expectations, black holes and revelations."

The wind has been blowing hard since yesterday afternoon, and we've had a lot of rain. Currently, the temperature is 43˚F, with the windchill above freezing at 33˚F.

Yesterday was an excellent writing day. I did 1,549 words on "Tupelo." A familiar, heavyset, balding, bearded fellow known to keep company with ghouls and vampires made an appearance, hint, hint.

I'm still coughing.

Fact: If there is a Hell, there is going to be a special corner set aside for the "Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are exactly the same" morons. And as Warren Ellis and many others are reminding us, there's never a wrong time to punch Nazis and Nazi defenders and Nazi coddlers in the face. This obviously also applies to the alt-right, who are merely Nazis wrapped in the 21st Century. Yes, Virginia, there is a time for violence.
