0229F: Enhance Your Clam, John Spartan

Maintain your calm.

There's a now-ancient episode of Perfect Strangers where Cousin Balki tries to repeat Larry's calming mantra of "I am a hollow reed" but ends up saying "I am a Halloween" over and over. That feels oddly apted considering today's events concerning Trump winning the US Presidential Election.

"I am a Halloween. Trouble blows through me like the wind."

A lot of bad news over the past 24 hours and in general a lot of disappointing news this year in general, but that's life. We vent a little today, we shake it off tomorrow and we chart our paths forward into the future.

But yeah, very, very weird times.
