Carolina in My Mind

I still don't have anything terribly profound to say about the election. I really was optomistic that Kerry would win, and I believe that Bush's policies will do incredible, perhaps irreversible, harm over the next four years. He and the Republicans are already seeking to increase the debt ceiling, allowing the "fiscally conservative" party to put us, our children, and their children even deeper into debt. Bush, of course, now has a "mandate" to govern, with the popular vote supporting him by a significant margin, not to mention having both houses of Congress heavilty stacked in the Republican Party's favor.

The good news is that I'll be attending Convergences in Raleigh, North Carolina, this weekend, where I'll be able to meet up with fellow bloggers Jenny, Collin, and Byron. Looking forward to meeting Jenny and Collin for the first time and seeing Byron again for the first time in several years. Because I'll be on the road until Sunday, expect little to no blogging over the weekend.

Raliegh is a good progressive town. I think you will like it. I love Chapel Hill.

Looking forward to the trip. I've heard good things about it, and it'll be nice to have a few days' break from politics.

Quick semi-related comment: here is a review of John O'Hagan's documentary film, Wonderland, a film I'd eventually like to look at in relationship to Capturing the Friedmans, specifically in terms of teh two films' representations of suburban life.
