a little bit of the story as to why I live in America
I believe that the impetus of liberty and the momentum of freedom outweigh and outclass any momentary leaning toward cynicism and doubt
Being here in the hospital since early Wednesday morning, I've been in a kind of post-election vacuum. Not a bad thing, considering the level of angst and acrimony that still seems to be percolating in the national consciousness.

And that - friends and readers - worries me much more than the rhetoric that has been designed so cleverly, and deployed so cynically to capitalize on such fear.
