Professor Heather Cox Richardson is this year’s breakout star of Substack, according to the New York Times. I’m a faithful reader of her daily Letters From an American. Each day she calmly summarizes the news and developments in the political landscape (a polite word for the American shitshow) and provides measured historical and constitutional context to help me understand what’s going on.
If you have not read her letters, I recommend you drop everything and check them out. Today she provided a succinct synopsis of the twenty years since 2000, situating what has transpired back to the Reagan Revolution.
