The view of the elections from Flatland

I just flipped on the boob tube to see if we had crowned an Emperor yet and it looked like Kerry lost big time. Ah, but read the fine print, they're giving results with as little as 6% of the votes counted.

THIS IS NOT NEWS FOLKS

This is speculation. You look like an educated person, you aren't watching TV are you? If you are, you aren't biting your nails or even paying attention I hope. Have you ever read Edwin A. Abbott's Flatland? What we're seeing is nothing more than the segment of a 3D sphere filtered through our premature 2D view of the election.

So have some milk and cookies, go to bed and wake up tomorrow and maybe Santa will have visited during the night. We'll keep the gunfire down.
