On the election

The only thing I have to say about the election is this: people voted. They had their reasons. Kerry was, I felt, the weakest of all the Democratic contenders, and in a sense, it's not a complete surprise that he lost, although I am disappointed that Bush will remain in office another four years, and I have some significant trepidations about that.

Progress comes slow, but it comes.

Now, I just want to render a plea: no matter who you voted for, don't get mean with your friends if they voted for the other guy. Agree to disagree and work together for the values that YOU hold dear. The people of the United States can make changes. I honestly believe that. Write the president. Write your congressmen and senators. Make your voice be heard.

Don't let it wait another four years.

There is an awful lot of really vicious attacking going on even between friends: Democrats vs. Republicans, Liberals vs. Conservatives, when actually, when it comes right down to it, most people believe a little of this, a little of that, and most people are moderates and pretty much believe the same thing. Honestly, it saddens me. A little good natured ribbing is one thing, but this goes far beyond that.

And now, I am going out for pie, wearing my pajamas, my slippers, and my fluffy, neon pink, Hello Kitty socks.

I suggest you all do the same.

Or ... well ... some of you.
