Pancakes Against Fascism
The kids are alright. In honor of Saturday's Million MAGA March to stand up and be infected for The Biggest Loser - which mid-morning had drawn a few hundred - K-Pop and Tik-Tok teenagers vowed to Make America Pancake Again by flooding MAGA hashtags with, yes, tasty pancakes for the newly blue-flipped states. Most popular were blueberry and rainbow-colored, also scallion for diversity, dinosaur for their belief systems, and many jubilant sprinkles. Their message: "Fuck your march. It's over."

Anger. Shock. Dismay. Still.
Exactly eight months after Louisville cops murdered Breonna Taylor in her bed, two grand jurors have again accused both the A.G. and police of repeatedly lying to cover up their misconduct. And the only cop charged - not with murder but "blindly" firing some of the 32 shots - was just accused of sexual assault in a lawsuit also naming the police chief and other cops who long protected him as he "used his uniform and badge" to target women. He sounds nice. They all do.

Calamitously, as the loser in chief sulks and stalls and plots, the pandemic soars. The horrific numbers: The U.S. just topped 10 million cases - a million diagnosed in the last 10 days, now up to 145,000 a day - with one in 441 Americans infected, hospitalizations at an all-time high, and no end in sight to the "terrifying" surge. The good news: Biden has a plan. The bad news: Th e loser who got fired for not having a plan except "let them die" is willfully sabotaging it.

A Hot Line For The Times
The mad toddler rages on, the party he ravaged cowers and colludes, the lawsuits pile up, his grifter goons urge lackeys to "stay at the ready." To help, they set up a “voter fraud” hotline that's been flooded, though mostly by snickering pranksters calling to order pizza, report poopy ballots, or recount suspicious sightings - an obese turtle on its back, a creamy orange in a spacesuit, a shirtless Vladimir on a horse, a Hamburglar stealing votes and lots of fraud at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

America Wins
What a day. The triumphal streets filled with whooping, honking, weeping, hugging, pot-banging, flag-waving and curbside "America the Beautiful" paeans. There were dancing mailboxes, "Good Trouble" tributes, joyful signs proclaiming "It's Over," "The People Have Chosen Empathy," "You're Fired," "Union Saved" - even as the loser's lawyers babbled at a landscaping store. And from a glad Burundian friend who voted for the first time: "I'm very happy (to) understand the power of 'We the people.'"

Meltdown City
Oh man. Slurred and addled, the Biggest Loser has given us "the single worst moment in American presidential history" by raving, "I f you count the legal votes, I easily win" and vomiting so many frenzied lies that an aghast media - getting it right four years too late - cut away from him. Then they eviscerated him: "Feast of falsehoods," "Pathetic lie after lie," "There's only words here." But Anderson Cooper won the night: "We see obese turtle on his back, flailing in the hot sun."

Still Here, Just Barely
It's been a time. We are spent, bereft, uneasy, deeply sorrowful to see exposed a country so broken half its people would still vote for an evil clown, grievously proving "we are what he thinks we are." But if Biden removes him, it will be an incalculable gift to the republic. Many monsters - Barr, Miller - will go. Many atrocities will end. And after Trump "claimed" more states, many resilient souls claimed their own perks - the moon, Tom Brady, Japan, Trump a one-term president. Breathe.

We Will Be There
Long day, night, day. Despite the endless lines and on-going, harrowing wait for results, Election Day brimmed with all the jubilant defiance of the viral lanky guy in Philly dancing in line in his "Fuck 2020" t-shirt, with multiple groups from Stroll To the Polls to Resistance Revival Chorus offering hope, joy, music, community. And food, thanks to José Andrés' Chefs for the Polls . His Tom-Joad-like maxim, more vital than ever: Wherever there's a fight for food or good, "We will be there."

You Have Disturbed Our Peace
Whew: Armed MAGA goons swarming the Biden bus in Texas and toting assault rifles in Kentucky, freak-flag-flying trains of yahoos clogging highways to deliver their cogent political message - "Everyone in the right lane sucks!" - a "March to the Polls" of voters, clergy, kids pepper-sprayed, Trump celebrating it all as the work of "patriots" - to historians, "It isn't 'like fascism.' It's fascism." But there may be hope: At his latest rallies, Trump played the theme song from "The Titanic."

You're Fired
Halloween wasn't quite the same, given....everything, but still there was good cheer: We saw a smattering of sweet brave costumed kids out, neighbors made ingenious candy chutes, two guys went running as Superman and Batman, and witches cast spells to defeat The Dark One. Best, Berlin's Madame Tussauds wax museum gave us the burn of the week by dumping their Trump in the garbage as a “preparatory measure” for the election - along with bags of trash.
