I avoided saying anything here until now, I mean we have talked it all to death at work but well just about the rest of the planet has put it their two cents/pence/whatever.|
Ok first the funny bit:
very child of the 80's
Lots of maps of how people voted, and the whole Canada 2.0 thing.A very good Guardian piece by Simon Schama talking about outward and inward looking factions in the US. b0ingb0ing's roundup of thoughts. Scary posts on websites. kim_jong_il__ has started posting again, well worth a look.
I don't think the world got any safer that day, but well more people voted for him than the other guy, thats how Democracy works sometimes (yes I know all the stuff about dirtytricks and other problems but I hope if they did happen it was only in a few places, otherwise I would be double scared now). I keep telling myself 'its only four years, he cant trash the whole planet in that time', I hope I'm right.
