America’s Future….

"...this is for the ones who stand their ground
When the lines in the sand get deeper
When the whole world seems to be upside down
And the shots being taken get cheaper, cheaper..."

                   -- Mary Chapin Carpenter

“I’m not ready to make nice
I'm not ready to back down
I'm still mad as hell, and I don't have time
To go 'round and 'round and 'round.”
                   — The Dixie Chicks

Sans math today…. Am in a mood :( …increasingly pessimistic at the simplistic lure fascism holds for this country/world... with disastrous consequences for our children.
…sooooo, just taking a moment to thank a few of those maintaining the good fight and vigilance on Twitter:

THANK YOU!!…. (and of course there are many more)
(one could expect writers/journalists/politicians to stand up to Trumpism, but I highlighted three of the mathematicians also consistently doing such, because they don't have to do so... EXCEPT for feeling compelled as American citizens -- and interestingly, two of them, Keith and Ed, are naturalized, not native-born, citizens).
(…plenty of others, of course, carry on the resistance in venues other than Twitter).

Have posted the below musical bits previously, so apologies for the redundancy, but suspect I may be listening to these a lot over the next 4 years.
