We survived eight years of Dubya, so we can make it through four years of Trump.
I am saddened to report that after a ten-year run the most excellent blog, Some Assembly Required, has come to an end.
It was a marvelous source of news, entertainment, and insight for all those years, and my great regret is that i didn’t plug it often enough or vigorously enough.
Not, of course, that CKM needed any recommendation from me, as his closing the blog disappointed thousands of avid followers.
I certainly understand his quitting. I’m feeling stunned and discouraged myself now, and the only reason i can keep working on this site is that my focus is almost entirely on froth and entertainment rather than the serious issues that our nation and world face.
It is a testament to CKM’s integrity and strength that he was able to bash away at the forces of darkness for so long.
We wish him well.
