Maybe today we can start to erase the six-year long nightmare disaster of a federal government. The polls seem to show a new Democratic House, and gains of 3 or 4 seats in the Senate. But it brings to mind the exit polls in 2004, and the Supreme Court in 2000. I wouldn’t be totally surprised if by some “miracle” the Republicans held on to the House and called it a mandate. Yet I remain hopeful. Here in the midwest (upstate New York) the big race for me is Eric Massa to take a House seat in NY-29.
On other matters, I want to start writing about the relationship between quality, globalization, lean business principles and sustainability. I also want to comment on a recent Mother Jones article on global warming and social networking (hat tip dailyKos). These themes all play together for me. Unfortunately, I’m trying to get a SQL Server database up and running today, so I’ll have to post tonight or tomorrow.
