Howdy, returning to the scene of the crime......

Dear DU,

Not quite sure why I decided to come back to have a look inside this venerable institution. I expect its something to do with the intensity of the crazy in recent months, and a sense of solidarity that people like me from across the water have with you all at this difficult time.

Anyway. Hello, Happy New Year and all that. My prayers are with you all and I look forward to hanging around a bit to get a better impression about how democrats of America (small D) feel about all this.

Personally, I think its going to be ok.

3. Good to hear :) From afar it feels unbelievable in its pace and intensity......

I am starting to feel optimistic, that you are headed to a better place now. Was a bit touch and go for a bit.

I am managing it a little better. The Sedition is not helpful but this harbor of sanity helps.

8. One thing you can say for France... the govt. is generally speaking predictable.

Also... the lockdown appears to be holding the line against Covid, notwithstanding our proximity to Angleterre. Personally I think we, the Anglosphere ,have quite a bit to learn about the subtlety of policy driven societal organisation from the French.
