To show my age: I said the same thing about leaving the country if Nixon
got elected! But I couldn't find any place better, so didnt leave.
To tie it into Celticness (since some seem to think this is not a proper
topic for this list): Is there something in our Celtic background (to use
a neutral term) which makes us see such political absurdities as a call
to flee? No, stay and fight! No .... Does anyone else see lots of such
dichotomies in their impulses over such issues? My husband has always
said that he finds it annoying that I see at least two sides of every
issue. I always looked at it as a positive thing, and at least it keeps
me from being like Pat Buchanan!
