Great piece and sadly accurate. I’ve written quite a few time travel stories and they often don’t end well.
As a somewhat off-topic aside, has anyone noticed that because of Bill Clinton’s moral slippage we got Geo. Bush and the Iraq war, and because of Hillary Clinton’s complete tone-deaf failure to understand the needs of the members of her own party we got Donald Trump?
Could the Clintons be the time-travelers covertly sent back to screw everything up?
