Encouraging

One of the best things about Google News is that it's easier for readers to peruse a wide range of news sources. I know some papers pay for prominent placement, but the overall effect is still a greater diversity of opinion that it's possible to get from one or two papers from one's home country.

This was one of the highlighted links on the top left headline a few minutes ago. It's a good sign that the Reuters wire story goes into such detail. I'm especially encouraged by the references to protests in NYC and Crawford, Texas.

I'm not sure the sentiment will pay dividends in the era of Diebold-doctored elections, but it doesn't hurt to hope.

Actually, it does hurt to hope, as any college basketball fan will tell you this time of year. But feeling is preferable to anaesthesia.
