Four years ago, it seemed like everything was just awful.

My spouse and I work at a large university in a blue state. Four years ago, we were suffering under the leadership of a really horrible university president, a governor that was really, really terrible, and then Trump was elected. It seemed like crazy was coming out of the woodwork at the time.

I remember thinking that the only thing that was going to make any of this better was to see these three figures out of our lives forever. Within a year or so, the university president resigned in disgrace under a cloud of corruption. I thought to myself, one down and two to go. The 2018 election season handed our one-term governor a handy defeat. The state elected a progressive governor and all I could think was, two down, one to go.

On Saturday, the third domino finally fell. It took over four years, but all three are finally gone, replaced with people I respect. It just goes to show you that nothing is forever and all you have to do is hang in there and better days will come around. Remember this in 2024.

3. And it turned out even worse than I imagined

I can't even list all the horrible things that happened in less than 4 years....let's start with kids in cages separated from their parents.
