much more humane

it is an odd feeling to feel good on election night. tonight feels good.

tonight, the majority of americans said no to the war in iraq. we said no to the right and their agenda of fear. we said no to republicans and their massive tax cuts for millionaires. most of all, tonight we said no to george w bush.

now let's build something big and strong and much more humane.

Don't forget that we also said no to Christian-fundamentalism based legislation! (Except for the Civil Union bans going through)

It is weird and wonderful to feel good.

"we" in michigan also said "no" to affirmative action.

thanks ward connerly for parachuting in and reeking havoc here.

it's grim.

and, it was very difficult to go through the motions of teaching today. i underestimated what it would be like to return to the classrooms and hallways today in the wake of this huge and hostile move.

i wouldn't be at my university if not for affirmative action. and i belong at this institution. i firmly believe in the social benefits of affirmative action and i am deeply troubled by this revanchism.

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside
And it is ragin'.
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'.
