on second thought (formerly: do not read this)
mr nice guy is disinclined to get all political on your ass, but he will say this: the system works. it is a marvelous thing -- the people vote and the people choose a new president and no matter how divided the country is, the losing half accepts the results. there is no bloodshed. there are no riots. sure, democracy is not without its blemishes, but i challenge you to name a better system of government.
oh. a post-script: mrs nice guy informs me that she is going to have an abortion while she still can. you know, for old time's sake. also. apparently we're moving to french canada. who am i to blow against the wind (marital, political or otherwise)?
