Morning In America

Rarely have I felt so good about being so publicly wrong (and rarely have I ever felt as much a part of — and as energised by — an American election). I think I kind of twigged yesterday when I saw a huge gleaming new American SUV parked in front of our building covered in Army and Infantry and NRA stickers… and a bunch of Obama / Biden stickers covering its back bumper. It seemed too good to be true, but there it was.

But what now? There's a world out there beyond the Bubble that hasn't changed at all… (and, in something its hard not to take quite personally, California's populist attempt to stomp on gay marriage, Proposition 8, appears to be winning, a real tragedy).
