On this day and night, my electronic mail box hath runneth over; for tonight
is, in the USA, election-day-night, a sequel to … Halloween’s … fright-night.
Yet Halloween’s fright-night holds not a candle to the frightening ramifications
of election day-night. Halloween’s frights pale next to the frights, of elections.
For electors across the country, masked in partisan republican red or democratic
blue … unwittingly underestimate … stakes at play … surreally, ironic.
To wit: International stories that have dominated the headlines play second fiddle
to domestic issues that … in the big picture … matter … but little.
