Love Him, Hate Him, You Can't Ignore Him

A San Francisco news site reported on the reaction of local artists to the re-election of Ppresident Bush. Author and independent journalist Mark Hertsgaard, whose most recent book is "The Eagle's Shadow: Why America Fascinates and Infuriates the World" had this to say:

"I was just at the Frankfurt Book Fair in October, partly at the invitation of the German newsweekly Der Spiegel, to do a panel about the U.S. election but also to meet with my U.S. and foreign publishers about my next book project," he said. "The working title is, 'Does the Future Speak English: How the American Language Took Over the World and Where It's Taking Us.' "I haven't had time yet to think about how Bush's victory might affect the book, but I can tell you that without exception every foreigner with whom I spoke yearned for Bush's defeat."
