Poland Here I Come!

Poland is overthrowing its idiot arch-conservative-peasant-catholic-totalitarian.aspirational.paranoia Party. The jubilation of the huge turnout of people waiting in line to vote, more women than men and more youths than ancient, crescendoed at 2 AM at urban polling stations overwhelmed by the numbers.

I can hardly wait to go back for a visit. Gdansk is one of my favorite cities in the world, but its gorgeous culture has suffered horribly under the PiS government, whose paranoid backward inwardness presaged populist idiocy all over the West. May this election presage further improvements as well!
