Re: celebrate

Okay, well, as a North Carolinian, born and bred, I now feel compelled to mention that Walter Jones is not in my district. You know, he used to be a Democrat (as was his father, also a congressman). He switched parties at some point. But even though he spearheaded that dumb "freedom fries" effort, he did later change his position on all that, and I *think* apologized for it.

And just to add, we also just voted in our first female governor (Democrat), and we voted out Sen. Elizabeth Dole-- not to mention, going blue this year (we think) -- first time since 1976. So that's my little support of NC. I have no idea what Congressman Jones was thinking, but I'm thinking he now wishes he'd never thought/said/ invented it.

Sorry for the lack of a mention of alternative processes here.

Oh-- so what did you write to him, Ryuji?

I won't express my opinion about the candidates (perhaps

seeing many "no politics on this list" calls within 2 minutes

elections. I don't like to see too many postings that are
purely political on this list either, but the absence of angry
voices from people of different opinions is indeed a positive
change in my view. It's like a continuous tone black-and-white
election finally getting some contrast control. No more
infectious development.

In response to Philippe, no, it's not a photograph, but it's
something that feeds the brain and the mind of photographers.

Incidentally, I also sent a note to Congressman Walter Jones
of North Carolina (who is reelected). He is known as
Mr. Freedom Fries (or its lesser known version, Mr. Freedom
Toast). Some (including himself) believe that he coined the
phrases for a wrong reason, or perhaps at the wrong time, and
indeed, the cafeteria of the House changed back the menu in
July 2006. However, those phrases may be given a new meaning

P.S. Back in 2003, French embassy declined to take the credit
for French fries, but they said it probably came from Belgium.
