Despite my sorrow and anger I do believe there are reasons to be optimistic, that we have multiple COVID-19 vaccines, and that Donald Trump lost are the two biggest. The love of my friends and family keep me going. Goodbye 2020.

Books

My Year In Books

Definitely check out Flowers in the Gutter by K. R. Gaddy, which is the true story of teenage antifascists trying to build a resistance from within Nazi Germany.

I also recommend Cry Havoc, the memoir of Mayor Michael Signer about “Unite The Right” in Charlottesville. I’ve read criticisms this book that it’s all “white tears” and trying to absolve himself before history. That might partially be true, although sympathetic he is a but self indulgent at times. But the true value of this book is the subtext. When you between lines, you learn how white supremacy works, even if unintentionally. At best it’s like Macbeth.
