Things Happen...

So, Bush wins... not what we wanted, but what can we do. We must be different than the rest of America, here in the northeast. Morality was the swing, they say. My sense of morality is surely different... lying and opportunistic war can't be good. Gay marriage doesn't affect anyone else. Stem cell research, abortion... shouldn't these be included in the personal decisions that the Republicans espose ??? And the economy is crap. Anyway...
Arafat is dying... don't really know what that will mean... but, it will mean something.
I put in a full day on the job... I might be fooling myself, but there seemed to be a serious increase in production. We essentially painted the ground floor/basement in a day. Not quite done, but close. Considering that it took them 5 days to paint 2 rooms and a hallway upstairs.
Syl's blog blew up or something... she had to rebuild from scratch... no idea what she's lost.

It was an interesting election. On the positive side, at least people actually became active in the voting process, even though I think the numbers were still low for younger voters. The morality issue blows me away, as well as married women supporting Bush. Supposedly, they want safety for their children. How safe is sending your kid off to war? That being said, I still love my country. It's the people that make it great, not the politicians. Plus, having different opinions is a good thing. Complacency is what's dangerous.

Michael- I don't know if it feels like a divided nation. There's always THEM and US, wherever you are.
Here, (Somerville/Cambridge) there's more US than THEM. The THEMs that I know, seem more emotional than rational.

Swap- Yes, differing opinions is very healthy. Hopefully, both sides learn from it.

Nothing new... We've always had a divided country of sorts... Especially during an unpopular war with body bags and wounded coming back home (remember Viet Nam?)
