QOTD #27 - On the power of attitude

You'd swear the Apocalypse is upon our nation now that the election night hangover is beginning to give way to a more sober assessment of what the next four-ish years might look like in Canadastan.

I question all politicians' motives equally - my journalist's DNA, I think - so I don't share the alarmist view. We'd be equally and alternately screwed or advantaged no matter who won, who lost and what political stripes they wore. In the receding shadows of the night before, it is what it is. And as I posted this morning, how we choose to navigate this period is entirely up to us. Looks like a certain playwright from long ago came to a similar conclusion:
"There is no good or bad, only thinking makes it so."
William Shakespeare
