Off topic warning...

I love reading the Wild Hunt Blog. It's the best blog I've found for Pagan news, hands down!

As for the topic at hand, I am an almost enternal optomist (regardless of the fact that I write Dark Fantasy) and really hope he'll win. We could all use the proper recognition of our faiths. After all, if they accept one, the next win becomes even easier!
Trying to create a world, even in words, is good occupational therapy for lunatics who think they're God, and an excellent argument for Polytheism. -S.M. Stirling
