As Lucy Liu asks Uma in KILL BILL: "Did you actually think it would be easy?" Uma answers: "Yeah, for a minute there I actually did."
I have little to ease your tension the next couple of days, or weeks, fretting about possible hot civil war. I had hoped we'd be rescued by several million white women and hispanic males, two groups who could shock pollsters and tip the balance by voting for their families' future. But I was wrong and the shock went the other way. So now stores on Main Street are boarded up and National Guard units are on pre-alert, in fear of civil unrest by either side, if it loses.
