If nothing else, it’s been a wild ride. Nobody here at the Pacific Legal Foundation can remember a stranger election season. From June 16, when Donald Trump announced he was running for president, to the morning of Nov. 8, few of us understood that history was about to smack us on the side of the head like an errant golf ball on the 18th hole of the Trump National in New Jersey.

Barack Obama did not go out quietly. His unquiet final acts were, in part, overshadowed by a successor who refused to come in quietly and, in part, by Obama's own endless, sentimental farewell tour.

The shortest honeymoon on record is officially over. Normally, newly elected presidents enjoy a wave of goodwill that allows them to fly high at least through their first 100 days. Donald Trump has not yet been sworn in and the honeymoon has already come and gone.

In 1929, Chief Justice William Howard Taft convinced Congress to finance construction of "a building of dignity and importance" for the Supreme Court. He could not have imagined what the court will ponder during oral arguments this Wednesday. The case concerns the name of an Asian-American rock band: The Slants.

As the week wound down, the Everglades Foundation (EF) and South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) already had produced more sequels in their epic battle over Everglades reservoirs than we ever got from "Clash of the Titans."
