The Mourning Day

— California, home of the modern motion picture industry, voted for Kerry.

These are the great American achievements: the United States’ lasting contribution to freedom, culture and progress. Sadly, that America, the America of which Americans have the most reason to be proud and foreigners have the most reason to admire, just lost. Again.

Today perhaps is the world's mourning day....
Quite depressing as Bush actually not only wins the electoral votes he also wins the popular votes..... ah... couldn't comment more....
People in the office are quite sad... depressed.... were upset this morning and then.. just.. so quiet..
The future of the world suddenly becomes more gloomy...
