very good Tim. 'Dear red states' is a fun article to read and it is
tempting to make fun of Bush lovers, or hate them because they are often so
hateful and stupid, but of course this won't help anyone. Trying to see
their reasons, and respect that they can't do otherwise, is the only valid
position even though it may be difficult.
