"History is written by the victors." (Winston Churchill)

Mike Myer begins the writing process

Today's Mike Myer column, "Take Him Seriously, Not Literally," argues that Trump supporters don't believe that he will actually carry out what he promised to do:

Meanwhile, a vast formerly inactive majority of Americans took Trump very seriously — but not literally.

Tough criteria but fortunately Bill Cole is running!

Saturday: a recycled Myer column about Bill Cole as outsider

In his Saturday column, Mike Myer makes two points:
