  1. Computer scientists urge Clinton campaign to challenge election results

    The computer scientists believe they have found evidence that vote totals in the three states could have been manipulated or hacked and presented their findings to top Clinton aides on a call last Thursday.

    I'm all for shutting up and figuring out how to work within the framework of a legitimately lost election. But there seems to be significant evidence of irregularities – including apparently two precincts in Wisconsin where hundreds more votes were reported than there were people registered.

    Rigged by whom?

    If the vegetables on your Thanksgiving table were harvested by people who were allowed to take bathroom breaks, paid and housed well, not children, and not constantly doused with carcinogenic pesticides, thank a union. 

    If you are able to buy wholesome food of any kind, thank a farmer.

    If your turkey or ham was processed with inspector oversight so you don't get poisoned, thank a union and government regulation.

    Take a moment, while you're bowing your head, and thank the Somali refugee or undocumented immigrant who will spend the rest of their life with carpal tunnel syndrome pain from slaughtering or packing meat at ever-higher speeds.

    The President – elect will try to do everything he can do undermine existing food safety regulations and union rights. Buy organic, buy local, buy from people who care about food.

    Care about food.

    What to do now? Trump changed everything. Now everything counts.

    Wise words from Barbara Kingsolver, one of my favorite writers. Read it all the way to the end.
