Friday morning, everyone - we made it! Can’t remember a longer week, a longer election cycle, a more divisive year. I plan to take a long hot shower Wednesday morning and close the book on this chapter of American Life. The High Five has been my personal antidote to this nasty debacle and my hope is you’ve had one thing in your inbox most weeks to divert, challenge, or amuse you. I started writing these last December wondering if I could crank these out for a whole year. My brother, Chad, helped me crank out the first few months worth until I wore him down with editorial responsibilities. Then we popped over here to Revue where everyone at this little European startup has been very nice to me, and very helpful. Thanks, Martijn & Veselina! And here we are, a few weeks away from the Five’s one year anniversary. I’m not sure what comes next but I just wanted to thank everyone for reading along and for all your kind emails, tweets and Facebook posts. The High Five Army is small but mighty. Like Lily. Thanks for sharing my foxhole as 2016 raged outside.
