I am and have been preoccupied with real life since Tuesday, so you'll have to go elsewhere if you're looking for ways to interpret the past week.

Luckily, there's no dearth of opinion available, but be forewarned that a good portion of it is bullshit, including most of the handwringing over "moral values." Unfortunately, I don't have the energy or time to go there right now. I'll hopefully be back later in the week with something more substantial to say about the way I feel or interpret what's happening.

In the meantime, keep an eye on the situation in Fallujah, the fallout from Arafat's (eventual) death, and the questions from some (marginalized) corners over the outcome and propriety of Bush's victory. Some sources for doing this:

Fallujah:, Al Jazeera, War In Context, ICH.
Arafat: ei, Ha'aretz, IMEMC.
Election questions: Black Box Voting, Mousemusings, The River.
