Ignorance is bliss, eh? That's not the way I want to live.

Well, I don't see it like that at all. Not that I think that Kerry would
have been such a great president, but I dread the assault on our civil
liberties, the isolation of the US in the world, the ruin of the
environment, and bankrupting of our economic system and social security
that is sure to come (or at least begin) in the next four years.

Anyway, thanks to the excellent practical advice from Stephen and Lyle,
but it looks like I'm doomed to spend the next 10 years or so here. My
kids absolutely refuse to move to Japan. (They say it's a nice place to
visit, but they wouldn't want to live there.) Until they're emancipated
I can't just do what _I_ want. 

First thing to do now is increase my donation to the ACLU.
