It could have been worse.  Election Day Tuesday was supposed to be worse.  So bad I thought I might have to head for a desert island. I even packed a suitcase and told the radio station I was changing the name of the show to Palm Tree For One. But it didn’t turn out as catastrophically as I feared. Still, it never hurts to be prepared.  So this week I planned what music I’ll bring with me if I have to take a mental health day for the next 20 years.
