Well, we Israelis woke up yesterday to a double entendre: indoors, we heard both of our leading Prime Ministerial candidates happily announcing their victory, and outdoors, all fog. At first I figured that the further I got, the clearer the weather would be, but no: wherever I drove, I couldn't see more than 10 feet ahead. Foggy in our skies and foggy on the radio - I couldn't help but connect them. But again, that's just me.
On the one hand, this situation is kind of friendly - right and left, everyone seems pretty cheery. That's nice, right? But eventually, someone is going to have to make a decision. It kind of reminds me of a bipolar sign from L.A. that my dear brother Benjy sent me a while back. It, too, wants it all:
See, now, most of us can't get away with that kind of thing. We'll have to wait and see how long our politicians can keep the grins on their faces...
