And now for something completely different...

Interesting times.

In case you haven't seen this, it's worth a look.  The NYT was running an "emotions" graphic, during the vote count last night, and up until 1 AM ET, I think.

You need to click on each of the three categories in the upper right; "Everyone" "McCain Supporters", and "Obama Supporters."

This was generated by votes.  Anyone coming onto the site was invited to pick a word- one already floating, or type in any new one.  And you could vote for another word once an hour.  I voted twice.

Kind of cool.  Flip through them- then flip back to the summary - "Everyone".

Who knows, maybe we'll make it.

I didn't see my word: DOOMED. :(

But after last night's election, I hate to admit it (me and Ron Paul -woohoo!) but I felt HOPE. And that's a good thing! Of course, we still have to deal with a conress that wants to give all our efforts to their buddies on Wall Street and in corporate America, and we still have a couple more months for things to get totally screwed up (can you say Slash and Burn) but we'll see. Hope is such a fragile thing, but it is nice.
