It’s my birthday today, and I am happy to be able to raise a glass to Joe Biden

his week marks two world-changing events happening the US: Joe Biden’s inauguration as 46th president of the United States, and my birthday. In both cases, people will gather at a social distance and toast the end of a terrible year. In Biden’s case, there might be a little more security.

It’s strange having a birthday in lockdown, of course, and strange reporting on American politics when your birthday falls on every election cycle on the first day of the new presidency. In January 2017, The Donald’s triumphant ascendance to power put a bit of a dampener on my own celebrations. This year, his unceremonious ejection from the White House will make the cocktails taste a little bit sweeter, even if those cocktails can only be enjoyed on a Brooklyn sidewalk in -5C while wearing many, many layers.
