    pie fight you're on, chill the fu(k out.
    I read so many diaries last night I almost went critical. Each one had some nugget of information, some POV that was worth considering and all of them had gaping holes in their factual fabric. Not misinformation, just holes, sketchy information. And since the situation was, basically Calvinball, where everything changes every play, there was no way to know what was in or out at any one time, much less the implications. I still don't know if we won or lost on a policy level and I doubt anyone actually KNOWS.
    I'm more sure that we won on the Political level, judging by the fallout on the Right and in the Corporate Media.
    It's a good thing that this place has so many different points of view and so many people willing to write about it. It's unfortunate that everything is hyped to such extreme levels that people start screaming at each other instead of conversing.
    Last night's ballet des fous was neither the end of the world nor the door to the promised land. It was politics and legislation. By nature, that's an ugly and unsatisfying process. And it was a horribly complicated piece of legislation that I'll bet, no one read, in toto, before it was voted on.
    Let's try not to jump the gun EVERY time anything happens, OK?
    People get riled up and ugly stuff gets said, it doesn't gain anyone anything, just chill.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
