It's just after

3 p.m. on Wednesday, Australian Eastern Standard Time, & Bush so far is being given 234 to Kerry's 188 of the electoral - U.S. emphasis on the third syllable unlike our emphasis on the second - college votes.

Potential doom, potential gloom. To quote one of the commentators I have heard today. "Bush is not a President, he is a corporation."

A Neil Young song rises unbidden. I fear history may repeat itself some time during the next four years.
Tin soldiers and Nixon's coming,
we're finally on our own
this summer I hear the drumming,
four dead in Ohio
four dead in Ohio
