As with all new incoming administrations, The White House website has been updated. Lots of little details stand out, like accessibility enhancements around text size, dark mode and viewport accomidations.
Also, since it affects us all, I recommend you check out the covid-19 plan page. Lots of great detail in here around how the administration plans to tackle the pandemic. Specifically, the parts around overall guidance and treating lockdowns like a “dial”, spelling out the rollout plan so folks know when/where they can get vaccinated
None of this is novel at all. It’s all pretty common sense stuff but I’m hopeful to see clear, consistent communication from our state and national leaders.
Holy hell, we actually made it! After 4 years, the Trump presidency ended in a way that was fairly predictable, even if we didn’t know the specifics of how it’d go down.

This is one of Biden’s better speeches I’ve heard in some time. He’ll never be mistaken for the great orators of this or any generation but it’s so refreshing to hear someone earnestly speaking about how to heal the divisions in our country and represent all of us.
But in Philadelphia yesterday, Biden delivered perhaps the most thorough-going and hard-hitting critique of American racial inequities ever uttered by a major presidential nominee. Certainly, no nominee has ever proposed such a robust agenda for curbing the abusiveness of police, and with such little rhetorical hedging.
What makes Biden unique (and maddening if you are far left or far right) is he lack of hyper-partisan politics and desire to make a “deal”. More often than not, that means he’s open to working with both parties and all people to push the country in the right direction. It’s likely you’ll disagree with some of his positions, but you’ll feel heard and understood. Biden will attempt to represent and govern all Americans, not just one party or race or interest group.
