London by Jay Wennington

This has been a tough century already. Remember when we thought the hard part was over? The old militaristic days of the USSR, cold war, and regional dominoes had all resolved itself and we were driving our little red corvette into the new century? Then we let an increasingly desperate Republican party steal a presidential election. We were still pretty sure we had the new economic thing figured out courtesy of Bill Clinton so what could happen? There was some vague disquiet as the new economic thing looked an awful lot like an old Republican thing but there hadn’t been really much difference in many, many years. Same corporatist policies but they worked pretty well under Clinton as Democratic presidents tend to be much more intelligent and competent than Republican presidents. That is one of those things we know but don’t really talk about because it isn’t politically correct. Then we found out what can happen when a mediocre student who made it on family power and money reacted really badly to a lucky punch. . .
