On a Train with No Brakes Traveling though a Dark and Stormy Night toward a Bridge That’s Out

That’s the way I felt reading Stanford Law professor Pamela Karlan’s review in the current New York Review of Books of Will He Go?: Trump and the Looming Election Meltdown in 2020, by Lawrence Douglas, an analysis of our federal and state patchwork of loosely assembled, mostly ill-thought-out, individually and collectively subject-to-abuse, constitutional provisions, laws and procedures that will come into play in determining who, if anyone, will be inaugurated as president on January 20, 2021 and compendium (supplemented by professor Karlan in her review) of possible horror scenarios, some or most of which are likely to occur shortly before the election, on the day of the election (November 3), and during the weeks following the election. No, there’s virtually no chance the bridge isn’t out.
