It's 11.59 and I want to stay alive

Actually, it's 11.34, but poetic license...With a high turnout...does that mean we can hope?

I'm not American, but like a lot of people in the world, I love America almost as much as the place I am from, and hate it rather more. I love Italy, say, but I don't ever want to live there, whereas parts of the USA have always been a temptation for which I could have left my wonderful London. I nearly moved to Chicago for good, once, and in my dreams I often live in New York or San Francisco. If I hadn't got sick when I had my surgery, or if that job reviewing for Galaxy had not been followed almost within seconds by the magazine closing....

I worry that a place I love is on the brink of something like fascism and I will have to hate it instead.

My best wishes to all the Americans I love, and just to say, worst case, you can come and live here with us, where the problem is god-botherers, not holy monsters.
