Today's View From the Unemployment Line

The elections are over and our country (contrary to what some sore losers believe) survives. And guess what, it would have even had Kerry come away with Ohio on Tuesday. Our country is like that. It has been for over 200 years. We're a forward looking people, and one way or the other we find a way to stay together and progress.

For me, the most interesting part of election night was the IM chat I had with my sister living in the Philippines as a Peace Corps volunteer. Despite a brownout that deprived her town of television coverage, she found a computer somewhere and was able to follow the returns over the internet. How about that? A taste of the 21st century in a underdeveloped country. What a world we live in! Posted by Hello
