I cannnot go back to sleep. I am filled with the kind of useless need to Do Something that makes mourning people clean closets.

We need a short game and a long game.

The long game is about fighting the things that made Trump a viable choice for this many people. Fight racism and sexism, work on building back not just a paper recovery but real economic opportunity and security for the working class and lower middle class, including the unions that helped make that happen the first time, rebuild the old rural progressive movement and strengthen its ties to the Democratic party, focus on civics education so that the system is seen more as a route to getting things done and less as a corrupt and useless obstacle.

The short game.... I dunno. What can we do to mitigate the damage of the next four years, besides give money to the ACLU and anyone else who defends Muslims, Mexican Americans, and black people in court?

There must be something.
