I wrote earlier on Thursday about why the situation in Colorado is making me nervous. It primarily is ratcheting up the anxiety due to the increased potential for violence breaking out. There’s really no good outcome to that situation. Of course, after I wrote all that and pushed to GitHub this wound up happening:

Of course, Mr. Trump somehow managed to stay on California’s ballot as reported by Steve Herman of VOA.
