Can I Ask A Favor From Non-American Readers?I got a comment from the ever-mysterious "Nics," a London reader, and it made me think--
If you are outside the United States and reading this blog, would you mind sending the post below (titled I Wanna Be Sedated) to a few friends? It's fashionable to trash Americans now, and I'm not saying I don't see your point. But I had a real gutful of it when I lived in Australia, and jeans-wearing Coca-Cola drinkers busted on America while extolling the virtues of Michael Moore (an American) in the same conversation.
Maybe this is a ploy to drive up traffic, but I just want people to know how tense everything is here right now. This week is going to be an absolute bitch for the whole country, and the next four years is gonna have half of us pissed off no matter how you look at it.
So please, if you don't mind, send your friends this snapshot just so you know what we're feeling like right now.
Thanks so much.
