==How well I predicted the election==
How well I predicted the election. Green means I always correctly predicted the state. Grey means I sometimes correctly predicted the state. Orange means I always incorrectly predicted the state.
I wished Biden could had won Florida: It would had ended the election on Tuesday night, instead of having to be up all night watching states flip blue at 1am and 5am.
Despite Trump’s defeat, America remains a very conservative country. Voters voted very consistently Republican down-ballot. Indeed, it has been the best year California’s Republican party has had in a decade.
It comes down to this: While the United States ultimately decided Trump was a bridge too far, our electorate is not ready for truly progressive ideas such as universal healthcare yet. Maybe in a decade or two.

Blake’s 7 is a low-budget British science fiction TV programme which ran from 1978 until 1981, in four 13-episode seasons. The programme, which has been one of my favorite TV shows for a very long time, acquired a cult following, and discussions about reviving the series have happened over the years, but a comeback TV series never came to fruition.
The series was finally brought back in 2013, 32 years after it was canceled, but as an audio-only series using the very same actors the original series had in the late 1970s. The series has been produced by a radio show company called Big Finish productions, and they have a section for Blake’s 7 shows, not to mention bundle discounts if one buys an entire series of episodes.
Big Finish ultimately made 43 new full cast audio stories until critical actors passed away, making it no longer feasible to produce stories with the original cast.
As someone who would pass the time on long flights by listening to the audio of the original 1970s BBC TV production of Blake’s 7, it is nice they made a number of new stories for passing the time on road trips and long airplane flights. I also really appreciate that Big Finish made it possible for the original actors to get paid to revive this classic show while the leading actors were still with us.
