I was really touched by Spike Jonze moovie "Adaptation". It ended with a beautifull quote from a writer i don't remember the name of. This film is the story of twins and behind that the story of unity. We have to be different and proud of what we are to be able to be all one.
In a democracy, you can ,on a political level, search for the balance through debate. The problem in the US is that there have been some cheating going on for Bush's first election (mainly thanks to people's TV addiction). Then the balance have been broken there!
It was happenning in France as well with Sarkozy, i'd say not anymore thanks to you in the US.
I like politics and prefer politicans who got elected by "chance" or/and because of their convictions. I hope this will happen in France next month.
Morning time here again. Shower again. Cheers.
