Capture the flag

Our warmest congratulations to all of us who worked hard to overcome the ceaseless propaganda, prevarication and vote-manipulation of the Bush-Cheney cabal to regain our U.S. Congress for the U.S. people. Now let's hold the Democrats to higher standards, to prove a real check on presidential power, eliminate torture as national policy, and restore an American politics of optimism in place of the politics of fear!

The election results are good news no doubt for the reasons Geoff listed. But in many ways Tweedle Dee has defeated Tweedle Dumb. Tweedle Dee is a little smarter, but the difference does not run deep.

Neither has as a goal world disarmament. No one is safe as long as armed a nations exist on the plantlet.

Neither has a goal elimination of disparities of wealth and power. Most people lead unsatisfactory lives as long as some are rich when they are poor

Neither has as a goal humankind living within the means of the planet. Time is running out.
