From Anxiety to Beyonce...

Thank you to Beyonce and Jay Z for the only bright spot today--their performance at Hillary's rally in Cleveland.

Seeing Beyonce hug Hillary Clinton in front of thousands--beyond heart-warming!

Watching Beyonce's dancers perform while all wearing blue pantsuits with white shirts saying "I'm with her"--a moment of hope.

Another great moment--hearing Hillary quote these lines from Jay Z's "My President (Remix)":

“Rosa Parks sat so Martin Luther could walk. Martin Luther walked so Barack Obama could run. Barack Obama ran so all the children could fly.”

Earlier I had listened to MSNBC and CNN all day while doing housework and cooking.

I went into such a tailspin hearing dt repeat untruths about Hillary Clinton: "FBI sources say she will be indicted.  In my opinion, she will be convicted.  And the investigations will go on for years..."

Fox News reporter Bret Baier had earlier claimed that two anonymous [FBI] sources had said Clinton would "likely" be indicted, but he had later withdrawn his statement as an error and baseless. 

Nevertheless, dt kept making this claim.  Repeating a lie is one of the staples in his playbook.

Like many, my friend Diane has been watching the polls obsessively:

i have a little paper list of odds and electoral college votes and hillary went down % wise on nov. 3, but has come back up and gained a whole point today between 7:48am  and 4:54pm.  am using for my data.

She is now convinced Hillary will win, but she like so many has been on pins and needles.

Two of my husband's friends, long-term newspaper editor/writer types, are checking hourly for the ups and downs of all the polls...  Both are anxious, and one is experiencing downright depression.

There are many media reports about the unusual stress on voters caused by this election:

We all just want this damn election to be over.
