awkwardly

Thursday

In case, like me and half the people I work with, you're suffering post-election malaise and you've also run out of Halloween candy except for SweeTarts and dumdums and those peanut butter MaryJane things that your wife buys for old times' sake even though she doesn't like to eat them, here's a Molly Ivins column to perk you up: Don't mourn, organize.

"The Bush administration is going to be wired around the neck of the American people for four more years, long enough for the stench to sicken everybody. It should cure the country of electing Republicans."

..."So, fellow progressives, stop thinking about suicide or moving abroad. Want to feel better? Eat a sour grape, then do something immediately, now, today. Figure out what you can do to help rescue the country -- join something, send a little money to some group, call somewhere and offer to volunteer, find a politician you like at the local level and start helping him or her to move up."
