Default I hope, I think, I know...

Given the outcome(s) of this election most of us have already been at least mildly certain of for months out, what are you now, still, hoping for that's at least just as likely to go the opposite way?

Right now I'm hoping that things don't go to hell in an Amerexit handbasket.

Judging by the immediate stock and currency market reactions, it may have already started. Hopefully this is just an overreaction, and they'll stabilize. But the markets were overdue for a correction...

It's also the anniversary of the completion of the Russian occupation of Manchuria in 1900, the Japanese assault on Shanghai in 1935, Kristallnacht in 1938, and on a brighter note, the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

For what all that's worth.

It's a truly haunting numeric combination in the form of a calendar date.

Because not only is it the date of "Kristallnacht" (always write in quotation marks, otherwise you identify as a revisionist Nazi in the European context; otherwise use November pogroms) - but also of the 2 events which are the logical precursors leading to the German political apocalypse: The divise end of the Empire/Kaiserreich and proclamation of the weak republic in 1918 & Hitler's first coup attempt in Munich in 1923.
That's also the reason why the Fall of the Wall in 1989 wasn't turned into the national holiday for German unification; opting instead for the technical date Oct. 3rd, 1990.

Let's hope this here only is a slightly crazy, but in the end regular democratic election.

Sorry about the nomenclature; didn't realize Europeans set the word off differently but understand the reasons behind doing so.

And it is merely coincidental, but this sort of coincidence provides something tangible on which to attach reminders of history.
In a way, it's like the books filed on a shelf next to the one you're looking for.

One always hopes for the best. Thanks!
