It struck me again tonight: two-thirds of Americans want Medicare for all. Jeez.

Two-thirds of Americans support Medicare-for-all

When I was younger, I worried that I'd never get to live in interesting times. Ha!

Sorry for the rambling, just all feels rather bizarre. I'll grab a beer, tuck my son into bed, watch Netflix, and all will be better for a while.
