Thanks for the input. Of course, if things were perfect you'd have nothing to strive for.
...I generally believe that elections here are handled well—although mail confirmation would be nice!
Which may just get your budget problems straightened out. Here's hoping.
This election two wonderful things happened: first, Governor Brown's proposition to raise taxes for education specifically passed. And then the Democrats won a supermajority of the State Senate. So at this point, they can pass a budget without a single Republican vote.
I hope Obama feels emboldened by the fact that he doesn't have any more elections to worry about. Also, if this election proved anything, overt racism, sexism, etc. doesn't go very far anymore...
All day Republican Talking Heads have been blaming their loss on the increasing scarcity of Angry White Men—the life's blood of the party. They could be right. Here's hoping.
(you just knew that when that Southern Republican yelled "you lie" he just barely stopped himself before appending "boy"...)
We got slushy snow (in the Fall) here in the northeast.
Just glad that it didn't come down two days earlier.
