Against all odds, the sun rose again today.
And against all odds, our NineShift prediction on the election did not parallel 1916, when there was also a very close election, but with different outcomes.
Thanks to David for asking for a revised prediction.
At this point we are moving back from evitable to inevitable, where NineShift started.
In talking with our son in Portland, Oregon, today, I was reminded by one of the last things Peter Day of the BBC wrote before retiring a few months ago. He said cities right now have more in common with other cities than they do with the rest of their respective countries. So Portland, Oregon and the other 21st Century cities in the U.S. may well continue on, affected (e.g. healthcare) but maybe not deterred (knowledge workers, climate change efforts, trains and light rail) by the policies of the new administration.
