I have one of those old-fashioned desk calendars that requires one to manually flip the date daily. On Nov. 8, 2016, time stopped and that date has been frozen. That was the date that Donald Trump was named our president-elect. I was not to change that calendar until he was voted out. That was no small pledge on my part given my age and medical complications, but it gave me a reason to "hang on." So I will now enter Nov. 7, 2020. The next challenge is to persist until the 2021 inauguration in January.

Congratulations to our President-elect Joe Biden and our Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their comfortable, convincing victory over the truly terrible, corrupt, racist Republican Trump-Pence ticket (NCJ Daily, Nov. 5). America is back, and diabolical Donald Trump is done!
Like usual, dishonest Donald Trump and his dishonorable, dimwitted sycophants are lying nonstop to the American public but, fortunately, a majority of Americans are nowhere near as delusional as Donald Trump. Biden-Harris won easily and anyone not suffering from brain damage (or fascist brainwashing) is well aware of the fact that Democrats Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won.
But deranged Donald Trump continues to whine, cry, complain and compulsively lie to the point where the vast majority of Americans are just laughing at him. Traitor Trump can't stop lying, yet defeated Donald feigns outrage at not being believed.
And more importantly, Donald Trump is now and will forever hereafter be known as America's biggest loser and laughable liar. Oh yeah, and by the way, enjoy prison, Trump!
