America is always divided, of course, with our reds and our blues and so on. But America seems particularly divided now, thanks to a presidential election that starred two unpopular candidates and ended in a near-tie.
Since Donald Trump won, there's been a lot of hand-wringing about the extent to which people in different parts of the country might not understand one another. Does some jerk in New York City really get what life is like for, say, an orange rancher in Central California? (I hope so to some extent, since he's my brother-in-law.) Does someone in rural Minnesota know what motivates people in our nation's capital? It's hard to say.
