We were given about one nanosecond for celebrating the critical November senate victory in Georgia before the terrible events of January 6th consumed the news and our attention.
But we still want to celebrate and thank Stacey Abrams and all the other great people at Fair Fight for delivering this entire country from the intransigent, if rapidly decomposing, clutches of the morally deformed, soon-to-be-former, Senate President. So big big thanks to Stacey Abrams and all the Black women who worked their tails off doing the hard work of democracy . . . and during a pandemic! (It is clear from photos at the website that the Fair Fight crew is actually quite diverse. There is even a white man or two . . . okay I count two . . . it’s mostly women.) And we support the national movement to shower this woman with all the accolades, honors, and the appointment(s) of her choosing, until she does us the very great honor of running for President.*

*Abrams is too classy to gloat, so allow me: Take that Governor Kemp, you thieving piece of garbage. And where did all your efforts at voter suppression, and the lying and the cheating, get you? Georgia flipped to blue, and now your family needs protection from the party to whom you sold your soul. Well done. And to you Senator McConnell, you rancid old capon, you will die despised and unmourned. Sooner rather than later if you don’t mind.

Stacey Abrams goes on my short list of US. heroes 20th-21th Century heroes, along with Frances Perkins. … Love the idea of cookies with Stacey Abrams. What about getting the Firl Scouts to sell cookies with women heroes on them? Accompanied by a one sheet or foldover with names, a blurb, and encouragement to google them? A way to educate people/kids about US history too often ignored in US schools.
