If the two sides were not to have such stereotypical attitudes
towards each other, perhaps there would be less pain. What
geenrates the stereotypes? Perhaps the media. Both sides play on them
for all they are worth. People project their shadows on their opponents.
The CBC did extensive coverage of these elections, all prepared for
another bout of hanging chads. In the process they interviewed
people of all stripes and kinds, including USAians in
Cnaada. Some simply work here, and some have migrated because
of the politics. They ran into more ion the States who
were ready to migrate if Bush won. You can probably look
for a minor mass-migration of academics if another conscription
happens. That was the case in the '60s. A third of the best
academic jobs in Canada were taken by draft dodgers, supposedly.
Canadian academics couldn't compete with qualifications from
Harvard, Stanford, &c. &c.
It wasn't nice for anyone.

We should avoid pettiness and slanderous name calling, today is a day of
national mourning. I am writing in the middle of Harvard Square; people
crying and somber, even worse than 11/22/63 and 9/11/01. I am unsure of
future; flee the country or fight. I am leaning to the former, how can
assocaite myself with the people of the United States who voted for this
moronic asshole into office not once but twice.
