Neighborhood Poll

I am starting to see a lot of yard signs and bumper stickers for Obama: when you remember that Santa Monica has more than its share of refugees seeking the entrance to the lost time tunnel to the sixties, it makes more sense. It also makes me cautious about the signs I post: their allegiance to civil society is very fragile, easily overcome by their anger and hatred. Screaming, throwing things, keying cars and similar expressions are to be expected of them, as they express their frustration at being unable to make a reasonable case for things.
