Spouseinbox and I have a couple of computers/web browsers running keeping track of the election results.  I was thinking it is rather sad – so much attention should not be made to a group so far away, so far removed from the present life circumstances.  The next thought was that this attention was there entirely because that group so far away, so removed from our present circumstances and so ignorant of what happens here has an incredible amount of force over our lives.  That is the reason we watch.  There is a bit of self-preservation involved.
