Thank you for everything you're doing with Lucid. When I stumbled onto your Substack and attended your Zoom meetings I was immediately impressed with your ability to write, and communicate, your research. I also enjoy your calm, measured approach (I'm very tired of ranting and raging in most situations), the fact that you do not stray much outside of your field of expertise (humility is important) and that you respect your subscribers.

Very nice photo. I miss fall colors. They were so wonderful in East Tennessee. Each season is different everywhere. Still, I miss snow and fall colors. NM is nice in fall.

Safe travels to Sarasota!! I am a Florida resident and feel rather isolated at times amongst the Confederate flags and Trump 2024 signs. I am happy you are conducting a session with our Gulf coast residents.

My sense is that nationwide, yesterday's voting results gave many a cause for celebration. However, we can't take our eyes off the ball. Collective resistance against authoritarianism is a daily activity - no free passes permitted.

Blessings

I was troubled to read in Wednesday

s 11/8 Washington Post that tonight's NBC GOP Debates are being cosponsored with right-wing Salem Media, Christian-Nationalist media group is a sponsor of Dinesh D'Sousa's "40 Thousand Mules" hosts such as Sebastian Gorda. Jenna Ellis and Charlie Kirk, all ultra right podcasters. Brian Rosenwald is quoted by The Post's Jeremy Barr, "This is a major mistake for NBC...I think it undermines their journalistic credibility."

Tonight I will be curious to see how NBC will handle the debates with Hugh Hewitt of Salem and NBC's Kristen Welker and Lester Holt as moderators. As a historian, what insights do you, Ruth.

Today’s photo is absolutely beautiful! It brought back so many wonderful memories of growing up in the Catskills and Berkshire mountains as a youth. Thanks Ruth!
