Note 19: Nebraska voted to raise the minimum wage to $15. And Colorado decriminalized psychedelics! We’re still freaking out about some races, but democracy held and shrooms are cool so this might have actually been a pretty fucking great election!
Note 20: And on that weird note, let’s go do some news. We sure hope y’all are recovering from a tense few days. If you’re like us, you’re still hitting refresh on some key races like every two seconds, but for now it certainly appears that our worst nightmares have been delayed for the moment. That thing you’re feeling is called relief:) Have a great day, SPs.

Maybe someday the New York Times will notice. More: MSNBC
