Bristol, U.K.

Tuesday, 4 November 2008

Actually, it is after midnight, so it is really 5 November, Guy Fawkes day here in the U.K., though it is still Election Day in the states.

Four years ago when George W. Bush was re-elected, we were also traveling in Europe. I remember that Europeans were outraged and that they would ask us how it was possible. I would try to explain that I’m from Boston, so how could I know? Asking someone from Boston why Bush was re-elected is like asking someone from Portugal to explain why the fascist party is so strong in Austria.
