I have an IFTTT applet that saves everything that I highlight, as I’m reading, in Instapaper to a Dropbox folder that I keep in Ulysses. Bored this evening, I was thumbing through my highlights and came to one from an article that M.G. Siegler wrote a few days after the 2020 election. 👏 👍
I am so, so, so happy that my young daughter no longer has to grow up in a world where a morally corrupt con man is President of the United States. That’s what I keep thinking about today. And why I’m so thrilled with this outcome. I take solace in the fact that she won’t remember the shitshow that was the first couple years of her life. Now we need to make sure that the country going forward is worthy of her memories.
