Sorry, but I can't summon intelligent arts commentary until I know for a fact who the goddamn president is.

I shall busy myself with non-thinking chores until Ohio et al. reports.

It's not over yet. It's nearly over, but not yet.

Between Bush being re-elected and the passing of all of those anti-gay marriage ballot questions (is it me or are they outlawing something that has yet to exist??), I'm not sure I care to stay in this country.

I saw September 11, a collection of short films from around the world. One of the narrarators explains the view of ordinary people living in the middle east under dictatorships. To paraphrase, since America is a democracy, whatever perceived evil we commit in the world (of which there has been plenty) is the responsibility of the people. When Iraq invaded Kuwait, Sadam was to blame. But when the US invaded Iraq, the american people were to blame. By re-electing the guy who made the call, we have accepted responsibility. Whether that invites more terrorist attacks on us we have yet to see.
